- Trusses (2D and 3D)
- Frames (2D and 3D)
- Plates and shells
- Plane stress and plane strains.
A computer project will be assigned to students that will consist in the development of a finite element code for a specific type of structure. The code will have to deal with inputs and outputs, including a graphical user interface.
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

AA1.1, AA1.2, AA1.3, AA4.2, AA4.4, AA5.6.
Specific learning outcomes of the course
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The preferred form of teaching is in presence. However, due to the current health crisis, the course could be done in a co-modal mode way or totally online.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The final grade will consist of a mark on a written exam (40% of the grade) and a mark on the programming experience (60% of the grade).
The programming experience report will be evaluated based on:
- The accuracy of the results;
- Comments: explanations of the algorithms, links with the theoretical part, explanation of the simplified study cases, explanation of the real study case, interpretation of the results;
- The quality of the report.
In both assessments, the teacher defines a minimum threshold of 6/20 below which the student cannot obtain a positive final assessment.
Due to the current health crisis, the written exam could be done in person or online, or it could be replaced by an oral (online) exam.
