MANE 6690 - Advanced Finite Element Formulations


This course focuses on generalized weighted residual methods and multi-field variational principles for constructing approximate solutions to sets of governing differential equations and associated boundary conditions. Topics include hybrid and mixed methods, boundary element formulations, p-version finite elements, global/local procedures, and penalty methods. Problem areas include solid mechanics (nearly incompressible solids, plates, and shells), fluid mechanics including compressible flows, and heat transfer.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: CIVL 6660 or MANE 6660.

When Offered: Spring term even-numbered years.



Cross Listed: Cross-listed as CIVL 6690. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and CIVL 6690.

Credit Hours: 3
