CIVE 5103 [0.5 credit] (CVG 7122) Finite Element Analysis 1

Advanced finite element methods for linear systems. The relationship with variational and Galerkin formulations, system of linear equations, polynomial interpolation, numerical integration, and theory of elasticity is explored. Isoparametric formulations for structural and continuum elements are examined. Introduction to linear dynamics and nonlinear problems.
Precludes additional credit for CIVJ 5301.
Also offered at the undergraduate level, with different requirements, as CIVE 4201, for which additional credit is precluded.
