Course objectives: This course is designed to provide training on basics of Finite Element Method (FEM) and its implementation using ANSYS and MATLAB. It is a practice oriented course where the participants will be exposed to case studies and some recent trends in applications of FEM.
Aim of the course is to enable the participants understand how to apply the FEM in obtaining approximate solutions to the boundary value problems. Starting with the basic principles of FEM, the course will cover finite element construction, convergence, and different types of finite elements suitable for a variety of applications.
Lab sessions will be conducted to train the participants on MATLAB PDE tool box and FEM software package ANSYS.

Course Content:
Finite Element for 1D: Linear bar element, Quadratic bar element, Concept of stiffness matrix, Steps in finite element formulation: elements, assembly, boundary condition, solution, Need for higher order elements, Convergence through examples.
Finite Element for 2D: Weighted residual method, Beam element, CST element, 4 and 8 noded quadrilateral element, Lagrangian and serendipity family, Isoparametric elements, Full, selective and reduced integration, Some case studies.
3D solid element: Tetrahedral and hexahedral elements, Some case studies.
Thermal Analysis: Transient analysis, Solution of heat transfer problems, Some case studies.
Dynamic Analysis: Modal analysis, Eigen values and Eigen vectors, Practice sessions on modal, harmonic and transient analysis.
Nonlinear and Multiphysics applications: Nonlinear finite elements and applications.
Lab sessions will be conducted for each of the units using industry standard FEA software package ANSYS and MATLAB tool box.
