Content 
The course will present the main features and possibilities of the finite element method (FEM) and its application in analysis of problems in mechanics. Aspects of the finite element method, from the mathematical background through to practical implementation and application are discussed. Emphasis is placed on possible errors and how to minimize them. Students will develop an understanding of the fundamentals of the finite element method and get some training in the use of commercial finite element software. ??????? 
Learning outcome  Objectives 
On completion of the course the students should be: Familiar with the FE method and common FE tools and approaches used for problem solving in mechanics,
 able to build up the stiffness matrices for common element types and to construct the system matrices for the structure,
 able to define the proper boundary conditions and solve the relevant systems of equations,
 able to evaluate errors and deviations in FEM analyses.
 able to build FE models for analysis of problems in mechanics using commercial FE software,
 able to present the result of a FE analysis in a clear and concise manner
