In this module, students become acquainted with basic concepts of finite
element method and with its application. Seminars take place in computer
room in the ANSYS software environment. The students learn to build the computational model, add the boundary conditions and load. On the model students perform the analysis and evaluate results. Tasks of linear statics are discussed. The students also take brief introduction about the deformation method and finite element method.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The students will have knowledge about the general techniques how to build the computer model in the Ansys code framework. The students will also know the fundaments of the finite element method.
The students will understand the computer modeling in Ansys and also the basic principles of the finite element method.
The students will be able to apply Ansys for solving of simple structural problems.
The students will be able to analyze the behavior of the mechanical structure.
