FEM COURSE MAP


TEST YOUR FEM SKILLS

You can perform the quiz and the exercise anytime as there is no submission deadline.  

Here you can try a simple 10-Question Quiz to test your FEM skills. Quiz duration is 45 minutes and grading scheme is as follows (10.0 is maximum):

  • 1 point for each correct answer.
  • -0.5 point for incorrect answer. 

Besides, there is a simple assignment to be performed by you. The cf model file and a brief pdf report including the procedure of the analysis should be sent as well. 
The assignment consists in an analysis of a structure
to be performed in CivilFEM software.
Both quiz and assignment will be graded and can be used to test your knowledge and (if you want) to apply for the Free Course Certificate.
