INS 459  One Dimensional Finite Element
Course Objectives
It is aimed to solve bars numerically, using computers, by means of the finite element method and to clarify the algorithmic logic behind these programs. Formulation of a beam element is the basic step to begin and to understand the finite element method for the future analysis using various finite elements
