EML 4500 – Finite Element Analysis and Design, Fall 2009 8 th Period (3:00-3:50 pm) MWF, TUR L005 1. Catalog Description : Credits: 3; Stress-strain analysis and design of machine elements; finite element analysis. 2. Pre-requisites and Co-requisites : CGS 2425, EGM 4313 and EGM 3520 . 3. Course Objectives : This course provides an introduction to finite element analysis and its application in design. It stresses fundamental engineering science principles applied to the finite element method. Students will learn the direct method of deriving stiffness matrices using uniaxial bar elements and one- dimensional heat conduction. Transformation from local to global coordinates is illustrated using trusses. Application of energy principles in deriving finite element equations is illustrated using beam and plane solid elements. MATALB programs are used to illustrate how the theory of finite elements is translated into computer programs. Two design projects are assigned so that the students can learn to use the technique to practical problems. Upon completion of this course, students are expected to understand basic principles of the finite element method, coupled with a strong foundation and appreciation for its application in design. 4. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component : 4A. EML 4500 supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specific ME program outcomes supported by this course include: (1) Apply knowledge of calculus based physics (ME Program Outcome M1); (2) Using knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations ( ME Program Outcome M2 ); (3) Be familiar with linear algebra ( ME Program Outcome M3 ). (4) Being able to work professionally in the mechanical systems area ( ME Program Outcome M4 ). 4B . Mathematical Sciences (15%), Physical Sciences (15%), Engineering Sciences (70%) 5. Relationship of course to program outcomes : This course achieves the following ABET outcomes [note that the outcome number corresponds to the respective ABET outcomes (a) through (k). Also, note that superscripts represent related ME program
