This course focuses on the advanced computational mechanics used in the analysis of engineering designing.
Topics include finite element methods of dynamical problems, nonlinear analysis and finite differential methods of fluid dynamics.
By combining lectures and exercises, the course enables students to understand and acquire the advanced knowledge of Computational mechanics.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the theory of finite element methods for dynamical problems
2) Understand the theory of finite element methods for nonlinear problems
3) Understand the theory of large scale problems and multiphysics analysis
4) Acquire the knowledge to perform the practical numerical simulation with FEM and FDM.
