CIVL 6690 - Advanced Finite Element Formulations

This course focuses on generalized weighted residual methods and multifield 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 MANE 6690. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and MANE 6690.

Credit Hours: 3
