Abstract

Engineering is at the heart of modern life and Engineers now use computers and software in the design and manufacture of most of the products, processes and systems that make up our lifestyles. The Open University is introducing a post graduate level course on the computational modelling and analysis technique known widely as finite element analysis. Covered will be basic theory, modelling, meshing and analysisng component models for stresses, deflections, temperatures and vibrations under operating conditions and loads. Using supported distance learning there will be many examples of good practice for safe and effective application of the method. Learning and assessment will be by web based examples and forums along with DVD case studies supported by traditional written published materials.
