Course  Finite Element Procedures for Solids and Structures: Linear Analysis
This video series is a comprehensive course of study that presents effective finite element procedures for the linear analysis of solids and structures. The finite element method is the ideal tool for solving static and dynamic problems in engineering and the sciences. Linear analysis assumes linear elastic behavior and infinitesimally small displacements and strains. To establish appropriate models for analysis, it is necessary to become familiar with the finite element methods available.In these videos, Professor K. J. Bathe, a researcher of world renown in the field of finite element analysis, teaches the basic principles used for effective finite element analysis, describes the general assumptions, and discusses the implementation of finite element procedures.
