The Basics of Finite Element Method

  • Online

The fundamental principles of Finite Element method will be covered in this module. Some of the key mathematical assumptions in the method (without going into detailed derivation) will be presented. The focus is on providing interested participants enough background and insight into the method that allows them to do further study as required, and equip others to use the method effectively.

What you will learn:

  • Describe the usage of the Finite Element Method (FEM)
  • State key steps in Finite Element (FE) model solutions
  • Explain FEM mesh and shape functions
  • Explain and apply boundary conditions

This course is part of the following course program:
