Methode der Finiten Elemente II (MB-154)

Finite Element Methods II (MB-154)


We will start providing course material for “Finite Element Methods II” on April 6th in the Moodle online class.

Even if the the semester start will be postponed due to the outbreak of the corona virus, we aim at providing course material, starting on April 6th. It will be done in the form of digital content and modern methods, e.g., digital lecture notes, screen casts, an online forum for discussion, etc.

Note that these announcements are made based upon the current situation, and that these arrangement may be subject to change based on new developments. At the moment, for instance, we do not know if and how examinations will take place. Please check this website and the Moodle class for updates.

The entire class will be organized and provided on Moodle by the name "Methode der Finiten Elemente II - Finite Element Methods II” in this semester “SoSe 2020”. Joining the Moodle class is obligatory. Please write an email using the subject: "Registration Moodle FEM II" to henning.lammen@tu-dortmund.de from your TU-Dortmund account (only ...@tu-dortmund.de, not ...@udo.edu) until April 24th in order to register for the Moodle classroom.

Nowadays, the Finite Element Method (FEM) represents one of most widespread calculation methods in modern engineering. It helps even the way of looking at problems regarding different physical-technical procedures. The concept of Finite Element Method consists of a numerical procedure for the approximate solution of linear and non-linear (initial) boundary value problems which are typically formulated through partial differential equations.

The lectures focus on the following subjects:

  • Dynamics, transient problems, time integration, eigen-frequencies, eigen-modes
  • Nonlinear and time-dependent material models (elasto-plasticity and visco-elasticity)
  • Special elements for quasi-incompressible problems
