About the course
A commonly used computational method in commercial software is the finite element method (FEM). Although the method first was introduced for solving problems in structural mechanics, it can be applied to a wide range of engineering applications. FEM serves very much as a general framework for solving differential equations using computers and is therefore common in the industry. Although the emphasis is on practical issues, some theoretical parts are also present in the course. Commercial FEM software (FEniCS) as well as MATLAB is used in the course.
