Course Description

Do you want to become an expert at structural analysis?

Finite Element Method (FEM) is a powerful tool. FEM is an effective numerical technique for partial differential equations (PDEs) in engineering. The fact that modern engineers can obtain detailed information for structural, thermal, electromagnetic problems with virtual experiments largely gives credit to FEM. The finite element method provides infinite possibilities for engineering, and this course provides a detailed introduction of FEM and its applications in engineering and beyond.

This course is divided into 15 lessons, which introduce basic equations of mechanics, mathematical principles of FEM, realizations in both discrete and continuum structures, various applications in engineering and skills at modeling with FEM software. Examples are demonstrated with MATLAB and ANSYS.

Now the course provides the subtitles in English and the teachers say that the exercises will also have the version in English. The students who dropped the courses because of the language now may can join again.

This course is really worthy because of vast applications of FEM analysis. So it should be explained in English as teaching language and some civil engineering or Geotechnical applications should be explained

My name is UZOMA Franklin, I'm a Civil/Structural Engineer, with a keen interest in obtaining indepth knowledge of the Finite Element Methods. Please and please, is there any way this course can be carried out in ENGLISH? The fact that it is not in English is the only drawback I have.

The course is awesome, I've been doing it with google translate without problem (100/100 all homework til now)... and yes, chrome has some problem translating to English, but reviewing the formulas and trying to get the meaning from the translation is not something impossible, so I suggest to stop saying "English please, I'm engineering, edx is for English students" and stuff like that if you're not doing any effort. There are tons of books in English about finite elements too, the course is not the only source of information of FEM, (and even if it were the only source), we are in no position to demand with authority the translating the content, because it's up to them. I don't care if my certificate won't be valid because i don't know Chinese and i'll be asked how I did it, because all I care is to learn for myself. Best regards!
