ME 304 Finite Element Analysis

This course builds on the concepts learned in strength of materials and introduces finite element analysis (FEA). FEA is introduced mathematically beginning with springs, trusses, and beams. A commercial FEA software package is used to model plane stress and three-dimensional geometry. Individual projects are used to introduce three dimensional analysis. Fee: $40.
