This subject deals with fundamentals of Finite Element Methods and its applications, which are useful for Mechatronics engineers.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to
1. Learn the mathematical formulation of the finite element method and how to apply it to basic (linear) ordinary and partial differential equations.
2. Learn how to implement the finite element method efficiently in order to solve a particular equation for simple problems.
3. Solve simple and complicated 3D structural problems for stress analysis under impact loads from general engineering aspects.
4. Appreciate the importance of ethical issues pertaining to the effective utilization of FEA in mechatronics engineering.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
