BMEN 6390 Advanced Finite Element Methods

This is the second course in finite element analysis that will expand upon the introductory course, BMEN 636. Included in the topics to be addressed are the theory and application of weighted residual methods, dynamic mode shape and time series analyses, geometric and material non-linearities, contact problems, and thermal and electric field problems. The BMEN Origin 2000 will be used for running ABAQUS and/or ABAQUS/EXPLICIT to solve all application problems.
