MECH.5890 Finite Element in Thermofluids (Formerly 22.589)

Id: 003923 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


The Galerkin finite element technique is first applied to a simple one-dimensional steady state convection/conduction equation. The element equations are derived and the assembly process is described. These concepts are then extended to two-dimensional transient problems. A finite element package is used to solve a variety of fluid flow problems. All course materials are available on the WWW.
