Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge on how to establish a geometrical specification of a product via computer based models using Computer Aided Design and Technical Drawings
  • Have knowledge on how the Finite Element Method can be applied to obtain approximate solutions to physical problems governed by partial differential equations
  • Have knowledge about the applications, assumptions, and limitations of the Finite Element Method
  • Have knowledge about the compromise between accuracy and simulation time
  • Have knowledge about the numerical steps taken in a finite element analysis in order to obtain results of deformation (strains) and stresses.

Skills

  • Can establish a three dimensional parametric model of a structure or component using a commercial computer software program
  • Can produce and interpret a technical drawing of a product (i.e. a structure or component)
  • Can perform a linear static stress analysis using a commercial finite element program
  • Can interpret and report results of simple finite element analyses
  • Can demonstrate a basic understanding of concepts and applications of finite element analysis from a sports science view point

Competences

  • Know when and where to use finite element analysis as a part of an analysis or design process in sports science and engineering
  • Can conduct a qualified dialogue with analysis specialists on numerical analysis of sports products
