Learning outcomes
The scope of this subject is mainly focused on application of finite element method. The aim is to extend students´ knowledge in postgraduate study in the field of structures modelling. In nowadays daily practise, this approach is irreplaceable and is widely used in industry allover. The accent will be on interpretation of results and their use in industrial practise.
The student will acquire detailed knowledge of the subject in the area according to the approval of the Branch Board
