FEM_ProgrammingProject

This is a complete MATLAB project, designed for grad engineering students (e.g. ME, CEE, AE, etc.), to learn and internalize finite element methods through implementing the FEM concepts. This project includes a complete (~30 pages) description and instructions for implementation, the skeleton files, and input file examples. The solutions and an auto-grader code to evaluate the students submissions are also available upon request.

Details:

This repository is part of a set of FEM-related codes, where you can find more details in this blog post.

In general, finite element method (FEM) is used as an effective numerical method to solve differential equations and widely employed in engineering and mathematical modeling, where a mechanical system is divided into discrete subdomains known as finite elements. The technical process of creating finite element meshes and using Gaussian numerical integration to calculate the stiffness of each element, assembly process, and solving the obtained system of equations have always been challenging to implement and understand by both undergrad and graduate students in engineering fields such as Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, etc. Therefore, as a TA in FEM and advanced FEM course, who also held several sessions and workshops for MATLAB programming and developing FEM codes, I started to develop many demonstrations and educational toolboxes to help students internalize these technical steps. The following is the datails regarding these packages and codes predented in the three sub-sections.
