Programme Description

Online Course: Linear Modeling

TU Delft Open & Online Education

Next admission period opens February 2018

OVERVIEW

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modelling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature. The majority of professionals in many branches of mechanical engineering will benefit from adding FEM to their skills array. The ability to develop modelling skills under supervision in a non-critical environment means that skills and techniques can be acquired in a logical, progressive manner.

The main topics of this course:

  • finite element method
  • linear static analysis
  • finite element type formulation
  • finite element model setup using commercial software
  • plane stress/strain

In this course you will gain:

  • Strong theoretical understanding of FEM
  • Application of FEM to practical engineering problems
  • Efficient modelling techniques
  • Understanding the importance of verification and validation

Practicals and assignments are done using either Abaqus or Patran/Nastran (based on your preference). After finishing this course, or if you have sufficient experience with stress/structural analysis, you may choose to take the second-course non-linear modelling.

DETAILS

Computational methods in structural analysis are of prime importance in the industry as tools to assess the efficiency and performance of structures in the field of aerospace, mechanical, civil and biomedical engineering. A combination of theoretical and practical knowledge in finite element (FE) analysis are valuable skills needed to address such problems in the industry. To efficiently model a real-life engineering problem using finite element analysis and predict its future behavior, an engineer must possess a strong theoretical understanding of the finite element method (FEM) along with an understanding of the importance of verification and validation of such computational models.
