This learning unit is not being organized during year 2018-2019.
· Trusses (2D and 3D)
· Frames (2D and 3D)
· Plates and shells
· Plane stress and plane strains.
More advanced material will eventually be covered: elasto-plastic modelling of frames, structural instabilities, modelling of brittle materials, lage displacements in structures.
A computer project will be assigned to students that will consist in the development of a finite element code for a specific type of structure. The code will have to deal with inputs and outputs, including a graphical user interface.
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
