Aim of the course and learning outcomes: 
Students will be introduced to computer aided engineering (CAE) using the finite
element method (FEM) and with the help of ANSYS software. The course consists of
the topics: CAE applications, methods and tools; FEM theoretical background;
general concepts of model analyses; ANSYS environment; analysis preprocessing,
solution and postprocessing; building or import of geometry; building of
finiteelement models; material models, modelling of basic mechanical and
thermal problems based on tutorials. Students will choose their own project
topics and work will be led by a teacher.
