Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels

Students apply their acquired knowledge from the fields of mechanics, materials and design and deepen and complement it with content from the fields of systems engineering, development processes and simulation technology using the finite element method.
Understanding of the fundamentals of the FE method, conversion of CAD models into an FE model (assembly), recognition and assessment of the possibilities and limitations in the application of the FE method for strutur-mechanical analyses, introduction to the independent work of an industrially used FE system, integration of simulation tools of structural mechanics into the product development process. F,M,S L1 to L6

Module contents
