Expand/collapse block Information for lesson "Finite Element Analysis NPTEL CC-E"
Description: Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical technique for solving differential equations that describe many engineering problems. Main reason for its popularity is that the method results in computer codes which are versatile in nature that can solve many practical problems with minimum training. Obviously, there is danger in using commercially available computer software without proper understanding of the theory behind them, and that is one of the reasons to have a through understanding of the theory behind FEM. This video course on finite element analysis covers the fundamental concepts and is designed for a first course on finite elements suitable for upper division undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in civil, mechanical, aerospace, biomedical and industrial engineering, and engineering mechanics; researchers and design engineers in the above fields. The course presents the FEM as a tool to find approximate solution of differential equations and thus can be used by students from a variety of disciplines. Applications include analysis of structural frameworks, stress analysis, heat flow, and fluid flow.
