The past few decades have seen rapid growth in the deployment of computer-assisted strategies to address practical problems. From construction and mechanical engineering disciplines such as finite element/volume calculation, to branches of medicine (e.g. biomechanics) and biology (e.g. evolution simulation), the list of areas where such strategies are applied is constantly expanding.
This development is based on a fundamental concept that allows problems to be reliably analyzed using complex continuum mechanics modelling, numerical processes and experimental techniques. This concept, which comes under the heading of computational mechanics, bridges the gaps between theoretical model building, numerical processing and experimental reality.
These Computational Mechanics course from the University of Duisburg-Essen aims involve the following elements:
- Model building:
Linear and non-linear continuum mechanics, phenomenological materials theory, structural mechanics, materials science and homogenization procedures;
Numerical discretization and solution methods of mechanics, finite element methods, optimization processes and program development;
Materials science, metrology and parameter identification of material models;
Computer-assisted simulation in all areas of engineering science and engineering practice.
