Course description and aims

Computer Aided Engineering, CAE in brief, plays an important role for machine design and analysis in industries currently and in future. This course will introduce the fundamentals and the current state regarding practical usage and researches of CAE as follows:
1. Introduction
2. Finite element method fundamentals
3. CAE fundamentals: thermal engineering
4. CAE fundamentals: structural analysis
5. CAE fundamentals: fluids engineering
6. CAE fundamentals: mechanical vibration
7. CAE fundamentals: tribology
8. CAE in industry
An emphasized aim is to provide a wide-ranging overview of mechanical engineering in an omnibus style by lecturers in different fields of specialties and from an industrial company.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) understand the current state of CAE
2) obtain the fundamental academic knowledge building up CAE
This class aims at obtaining the items 6 and 7 in the ME course guide.
