Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical and computer-based technique of solving a variety of practical engineering problems involving stress analysis, fluid flow, heat transfer, vibrations, electrical and magnetic fields, etc. It is recognized by developers and users as one of the most powerful numerical analysis tools ever devised to analyze complex problems of engineering. The underlying theory of the method is now well established, with many books and courses providing adequate explanations of the theory. However, most people using the method, via commercial software or in-house codes, do not often understand the method as applied to engineering problems, especially in generating output data and interpreting the results. This course will be particularly beneficial for Engineers and Scientists working in Structural/ Fluid flow/Environmental/ Geo-technical/ Thermal Engineering, Research Organizations, Govt. R&D Departments, Consulting companies, and self-employed practitioners engaged in the analysis, design, planning, construction, operation, maintenance and management. As participants are expected from all over India, this course would provide an excellent opportunity for the participants to interact with one another and discuss problems and solutions of mutual interest. At the end of the course, the participants may be in a position to identify and select appropriate FEM methodologies for their specific problems.
