MNE 446: Finite Element Method in Manuf

Prerequisite: MNE 252 or equivalent

Finite element method (FEM) and its application to additive manufacturing problems. The objective of this course is to enable students to apply FEM to a wide range of engineering problems.Topics include: Introduction to the fundamentals of FEM; Applied finite element modeling and practical aspects of solid, heat transfer, time-dependent, and multiphysics coupled problems; Review of additive manufacturing processes and quality/reliability issues; FEM to predict part distortions, residual stresses, and in-service performance; Simulation-based design optimization for quality improvement.
