Syllabus
Prerequisites: material science, solid mechanics, Physics metallurgy
Target skills and knowledge: students will be able to explain the basic principles of the numerical methods presented in class and identify their field of applicability and limitations. Also, the students will be capable to appropriately modify computer programs used during the course to solve problems in the field of solid mechanics with focus on metal plasticity. The students will be able to present their results and discuss them with critical attitude.
Examination methods: hands-on computer sessions, presentation and discussion of a scientific paper, oral examination
Assessment criteria: the students will use computer programs to solve problems in the field of solid mechanics and will present and discuss their results in a report. The oral examination will focus on the discussion of the report. Additionally, the students will deepen their knowledge of one of the numerical methods by studying, presenting in class, and discussing a scientific paper of their choice. The final grade will consist of the grade of the report, the oral exam, and the presentation and discussion of the scientific paper.
Course unit contents: Basics and applications of the finite element method. Bascis and applications of molecular dynamics. Multi-scale methods.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: lectures, numerical exercises, presentation and discussion of scientific papers.
Additional notes about suggested reading: the slides will be available for download
