Syllabus
Prerequisites: Solid mechanics, materials science, numerical analysis, linear algebra
Target skills and knowledge: The focus of this course is on the finite element method (FEM) with applications to the analysis of the linear and nonlinear continuum response of materials. After the successful completion of the course, the students are able to develop and use simple FEM computer codes and to critically assess results from computational analyses.
Examination methods: Oral examination and oral discussion of a report.
Assessment criteria: the student will develop computer programs based on the finite element method and will present and discuss his implementation and results in a report; the report will be assessed and contribute to the final grade. In the oral examination the student should demonstrate an understanding of the theory of the finite element method and its application to the computational mechanics of materials.
Course unit contents: Governing equations and variational principles
FEM implementation in 1-D and 2-D
Singularities
Material nonlinearities
Algorithms for material nonlinearities
Rate-independent and rate-dependent plasticity
Microstructural modeling
Effective properties
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: blended learning by means of a mixture of traditional lectures and flipped lectures (flipped classroom) with class assignments and computer sessions. Procedures discussed in class will be applied in the computer sessions. The student will gradually develop competence in writing, verifying, and validating simple computer codes.
