Zeal to learn the Subject
Methods for formulations of mathematical models of analysis of mechanical systems are introduced. The class of problems include 1D and 2D structural, thermal and fluid problems; trusses and beams structural problems.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand the concept of finite element method for solving Mechanical Engineering problems.
2. Apply the knowledge of FEM for 1D stress analysis, heat transfer analysis and flow analysis.
3. Formulate and solve problems of trusses, beams, planar loading and axisymmetric.
4. Formulate and solve preliminary problems for dynamic analysis.

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.
