Selected numerical methods for solving of differential equations, introduction of variational methods, introduction to finite element method, modeling of basic physical phenomena, implementation of fields of physics. (allowance 0/3)
2.Mechanical models of composites (layered composites with fiber inclination, bonded line, particle composites, modeling of the density distribution, sandwiches, laminates). (allowance 0/3)
3.Diffusion and coupled models of wood and wood-based materials (heat, humidity, coupling -thermo and hygro-expansion). (allowance 0/3)
4.Orthotropic shell models with composite wood-based physical analysis of the, the beam models for static and dynamic solutions. (allowance 0/3)
5.Solid mechanics models of details of wooden structures, plane thermal problems (structure, thermal bridges). (allowance 0/3)
6.Solid thermal analysis (heating, drying, modification). (allowance 0/3)
7.Probabilistic sensitivity analysis (impact factors, changes in geometry, material changes). (allowance 0/3)
8.Dynamic analysis for beam, shell and solid elements (modal, harmonic and transient problems), acoustic analysis. (allowance 0/6)
9.Design optimization and topology optimization. (allowance 0/3)
10.Work on the project, presentation / defense projects. (allowance 0/9)
