Courses

Materials

Introduction course of material science applied to usual building materials, especially concrete and metals. Description of their fabrication, mechanical and thermal properties and use in construction.

Continuum mechanics

In this course, the tools to describe the materials not at the atom level but as a continuum are presented. The stress and deformation tensors, the conservation laws (mass, energy, momentum), the linear elasticity and the Newtonian flow are treated using examples of practical applications.

Finite element theory

The goal of this class is to understand the finite element method i.e. the variational weak and strong formulations, the matrix assembling, the global formulation and the different time stepping schemes. Application on a scalar field (temperature) will be done with Abaqus.

Practice of finite elements

The goal of this class is to learn how to carry out in a rigorous and critical manner finite element analysis with the help of a modern CAE program.
