In this course, students will learn the tools necessary to model and analyze machine components and structures using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Students will analyze mechanical objects under static and dynamic loading using both manual methods and commercial FEA software. Emphasis will be placed on modeling techniques used for FEA structural stress-strain, frequency, and thermal analysis.
