About The Worksop:
The finite element method (FEM) is a commonly used numerical tool for the solution of differential equations. Such differential equations arise, during analysis of the structural integrity of mechanical components subjected to various kind of loading. For example, an aircraft’s landing gear subjected to dynamic loading during landing and takeoff. Complex problems such as coupled-field interactions, contact stress analysis, metal forming, fluid-structure interaction, for which obtaining closed form solution is tough, can be solved with a modest effort using FEM.
Topics to be covered:
• Basics: introductory solid mechanics, concepts of FEA, formulation methodologies, interpolation theory, isoparametric formulation. • Applications: composite structures, plasticity, fracture mechanics, cohesive zone modelling, transient and harmonic analysis. • Practical sessions on commercial finite element software and programming of finite elements using Matlab. • Lab sessions on fabrication and testing of composite materials and structures
