ME 517 - Finite Elements for Engineering Applications

3 Credit Hours
Modern computational theory applied to conservation principles across the engineering sciences. Weak forms, extremization, boundary conditions, discrete implementation via finite element, finite difference, finite volume methods. Asymptotic error estimates, accuracy, convergence, stability. Linear problem applications in 1, 2 and 3 dimensions, extensions to non-linearity, non-smooth data, unsteady, spectral analysis techniques, coupled equation systems. Computer projects in heat transfer, structural mechanics, mechanical vibrations, fluid mechanics, heat/mass transport.
Cross-listed: (Same as Aerospace Engineering 517; Biomedical Engineering 517.)

Comment(s): Bachelor’s degree in engineering or natural science required.
