MEC303 Computational Mechanics


Computer aided engineering (CAE) is now a common step in the design of engineering structures. This course builds on the knowledge and skills gained in Mechanics of Materials and Dynamics 1. You will gain an understanding of the operation and limitations of CAE systems. You will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to design such structures and systems. Material presented includes a brief discussion on the architecture of CAE systems, numerical methods and finite element methods. Considerable emphasis is placed on the appropriate use of the finite element method in the design process.
