Digital Modelling for Structural Analysis and Design

The module provides the future engineer with a solid background regarding numerical approaches for structural analysis of mechanical components and structures, with a focus on the minimisation of primary resources. The key contents of the course are: Fundamentals of structure matrix analysis; Finite element method (FEM); Topology optimisation for green design; Practical use of numerical techniques.  Examples of virtual prototyping for durability analysis of machine elements with commercial computer codes (Lab. Activity).
