Methode der Finiten Elemente II (MB-154)

Introduction To Finite Element Method II (MMT 5-2)


The course will start Tuesday, April 05, 2022. As of now, the plan is to hold the course in the form of face-to-face classes (of course depending on the further development of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting regulations and laws).

All materials and further information will be provided in this Moodle course on the Moodle platform of TU Dortmund University. In order to obtain the password for the course, please send an e-mail with the subject "Registration FEM2" to using your TU Dortmund Unimail-Account (only ...@tu-dortmund.de, not ...@udo.edu). Additionally the credentials for the Moodle course will be handed out in the first lecture.



Nowadays, the Finite Element Method (FEM) represents one of most widespread simulation methods in modern engineering sciences. The concept of the FEM consists of a numerical procedure for the approximate solution of linear and non-linear (initial) boundary value problems which are typically represented by partial differential equations. This course is based on the course Finite Element Methods I and elaborates further aspects and applications of the Finite Element Method.

The lectures focus on the following subjects:

  • Nonlinear elasticity (at small strains)
  • Elastoplasticity
  • Selected topics

In the exercises, the focus is placed on:

  • Applications of the lecture's content
  • Programming in Python
