CIVL 6680 - Finite Element Programming


Examines the implementation of finite element methods. Consideration is first given to the techniques used in classic finite element programs. Attention then focuses on development of a general geometry-based code which effectively supports higher order adaptive technique. Technical areas covered include: effective construction of element matrices for p-version finite elements, ordering of unknowns, automatic mesh generation, adaptive mesh improvement, program and database structures. Implementation of automated adaptive techniques on parallel computers is also covered.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CIVL 6660, MANE 6660, CSCI 6860, or MATH 6860.

When Offered: Spring term odd-numbered years.



Cross Listed: Cross listed as MANE 6680. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and MANE 6680.

Credit Hours: 3
