Required prior and related subjects: • Mathematics (differential and integral calculations, linear algebra, differential equations) • Physics (mechanics, thermodynamics, fundamentals of physics of solids) • Theoretical mechanics (statics, kinematics, dynamics) • Strength of Materials (concept of stress and strain analysis of the stress state in a point of the body, the geometric characteristics of sections, stretching, twisting, bending rods potential energy of elastic deformation vibrations designs, technical impact theory).
Summary of the subject: The course aims at developing the students' skills of applying modern numerical methods for calculation of complex engineering structures. The focus of theory and practical application of the finite element method. This course provides an opportunity to more fully and deeply acquainted with the calculation of complex structures and structures that are in a complex resistance action of dynamic loads. It also allows you to evaluate the accuracy of the results obtained by the methods of strength of materials, theory of elasticity and plasticity. Learning the basics finite element method extends the range of the objects (plates, membrane arrays), which are widely used in the design of transport constructions
Assessment methods and criteria: Evaluation of the student's current control is carried out based on the result of successful performance and defense of laboratory work and calculation and graphic work, for part-time students - performance of control work. The form of semester control is an exam. Performance and successful defense of laboratory work (12 points) Construction of a hybrid finite-element model of the structure using finite elements of different types (18 points) Exam 70 points
