Finite element methods for multi-physics

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 5
  • Semester: 3
  • University: Vienna University of Technology
  • Objectives:

     

    In this lecture the current state of numerical simulation using the Finite-Element (FE) method for coupled field problems, which appear within the design process of modern mechatronic systems (e.g., sensors and actuators), is presented. In combination to the theory of magnetic, mechanical and acoustic fields with all their couplings, we will discuss practical applications occuring during the design and optimization of modern mechatronic systems (numerical simulation of electromagnetic actuators, of piezoelectric positioning drives, vibrational induced sound generated by machines and automobiles, etc.)

  • Topics:

     

    The lecture starts with a detailed discussion of the Finite-Element (FE) method including the main aspects for computer implementation. Thereby, a python program will be available, which contains the main routines for computation of mechanical problems. In a next step, the current state of numerical simulation using the Finite-Element (FE) method for coupled field problems, which appear within the design process of modern sensors and actuators, is presented. In combination to the theory of magnetic, mechanical and acoustic fields with all their couplings, we will discuss practical applications occurring during the design and optimization of modern mechatronic systems (numerical simulation of electromagnetic actuators, of piezoelectric positioning drives, vibrational induced sound generated by machines and automobiles, etc.).
