Course location / Course dates



Part 1: Computer aided design (Prof. Dr.-Ing. D. Krause)

  • Introduction to integrated product development
  • 3D-CAD-systems and CAD-interfaces
  • Introduction to PDM-systems
  • Additional computer aided engineering/simulation tools (FEA, DMU, VR)

Part 2: Introduction to the Finite Element Method (Dr.-Ing. S. Lippert)

  • General overview on the finite element method
  • Displacement method
  • Isoparametric elements
  • Numerical integration
  • Applications
  • Programming of elements (Matlab, hands-on sessions)

Part 3: Structural Optimization Methods (Prof. Dr.-Ing. C. Emmelmann)

  • Introduction to structural optimization theory
  • Fields of application for structural optimization and commercial software tools

This module relies heavily on the interconnection of theory and the application of commercial software systems via live demonstrations as well as hands-on sessions in a PC-pool.
