Finite elements I
UE 1

Upon successful completion of the course (VL+UE) students will be able to
use a commercial finite element software for the solution of simple problems
of linear elasticity.

This is the accompanying tutorial for the lecture ``Finite elements I''.
In a first step, students will be shown how to use a commercial finite
element software (ABAQUS) for the simulation of problems of linear
After the first introduction assignments will be given that are
intended to be completed in groups of two students.
The assigments are chosen such to illustrate topics presented in
the lecture.
Supported by the lecturers, students should not only learn how to
perform a finite element simulation but also how to interpret the
results obtained from the simulations (based on their knowledge
about the theory of elasticity).

Continuous assessment (based on regular written and/or oral contribution by participants).

Course examination according to § 7, statute section on "study-law regulations"

Will be discussed in the first lesson.
