Numerical Implementation of Constitutive Models

Numerical Implementation of Constitutive Models

(Master Laboratory)

QUALIFICATION OBJECTIVES

The module covers implementation and testing of material models. After successful completion of the module the students are able to:

  • Code subroutines that describe material behavior
  • Test the subroutines in a finite element software

Key goal of this course is the link between the continuum mechanics and the Finite Element method for solving the resulting partial differential equations PDEs, by using Fortran and FEAP as a numerical tools.

CONTENTS

  • Material modeling
  • Fortran programming
  • Finite element calculations using FEAP (Finite Element Analysis Program)
