Objectives of studying the discipline

The aim of the course is to study the techniques of computer modeling and the solution of some applied problems of mechanics and biomechanics using the finite element method.

As a result of the study, the master student must be able to:

  • use the APDL (ANSYS Programming Design Language) commands to generate finite element models;
  • model wear;
  • simulate the behavior of tribo-phathic, mechanothermodynamic and biomechanical systems;
  • process and analyze the results of a series of computational experiments.
