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.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Students' knowledge of computational fluid dynamics and finite element method for material mechanics and their ability to apply them to practical problems will be assessed. These are evaluated by report problems 60%, exercise problems 40%.
Students must have successfully completed continuum mechanics or computational mechanics, or have equivalent knowledge.
