2 MAE 4700 –FE Analysis for Mechanical & Aerospace Design N. Zabaras (11/05/2009)
Remaining topics for the class
•In the remaining ~6 lectures, we will cover a randomcollection of topics that you can further explore on yourown. They include (not necessarily in this order):
– Finite elements in 3D (solid elements) – Transient problems, Dynamics – Non-linear problems (material and geometric non-linearities) – Advection-diffusion, Fluid Mechanics – Optimization and Design
•These presentations will not be an overview of thesesubject areas. We will rather discuss and solve somesimple problems that bring up these topics and the need forfurther studies in FEM.
