- Program overview
Title: Dynamic Analysis with CivilFEM Powered by Marc – online course. Director: Professor Juan José Benito Muñoz.
Department: Construction & Manufacturing Engineering (UNED University)
- Eligibility and requirements
An academic degree is required although university students in the last year of their course may be admitted with documentary evidence.
A technical background in linear static structural analysis with CivilFEM Powered by Marc software is required, which may be satisfied through:
- Completion of the Introduction to FEM with CivilFEM Powered by Marc online course, also available in ICAEEC.
- Completion of the Expert Module of the Construction branch of the International Master’s in Theoretical and Practical Application of Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation of UNED – Ingeciber
This program provides attendees with professional training in the field of Dynamic analysis with the Finite Element Method, focusing on civil engineering.
The objective of this course is to provide the adequate theoretical and practical background to analyze dynamic problems through numerical simulations based on the finite element method with CivilFEM Powered by Marc.
With this objective in mind, the course is fully structured into applied and practical course subjects that include the use of professional software currently on the market, such as CivilFEM Powered by Marc.
Ingeciber and UNED, the partners to this course, are determined to invest in the internationalization of attendees and collaborators and want to offer participants the maximum number of options, such as this course, with the goal of sharing experiences in the world of CFD at a global level.
The course is divided into two subjects:
- Dynamic Analysis with CivilFEM Powered by Marc.
- Practical Application Exercises with CivilFEM powered by Marc.
The contents of each subject are detailed below.
- DYNAMIC ANALYSIS WITH CivilFEM Powered by Marc
The subject consists of the following chapters:
- Review of Fundamentals.
- Modal Analysis.
- Transient Analysis.
- Harmonic Analysis.
- Spectral Analysis.
- Nonlinear Analysis.
- PRACTICAL APPLICATION EXERCISES WITH CivilFEM powered by Marc
The objective of this subject is to complete the concepts explained previously in the first subject through a number of exercises that must be completed using CivilFEM powered by Marc.
The exercises represent a review of the concepts introduced in the subjects taken till now, as well as the orderly use of the CivilFEM powered by Marc.
These exercises will be delivered to the tutor in order to get feed back and recommendations. The exercises will be similar to the following ones:
- Dynamic Analysis of a Cantilever Beam.
- Workbench Table.
- Modal Analysis of a Building.
- Jointed Cylinder System.
- Serviceability Limit State of Vibrations in a Footbridge.
- Seismic analysis of a frame.
- Dynamic Analysis of Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
- Steel cable string.
- Cable stayed bridge.
- Anti-vibration mounts.
- Wind turbine analysis.
- Vortex shedding on chimney.
35 hours of study. The course lasts from 1 to 6 weeks with full flexibility since no specific delivery date is indicated.
Distance learning methodology, including pre-prepared study materials and bibliography, tutorials, audiovisual resources and practical application exercises.
- Teaching Materials
Attendees will receive the teaching guide and the corresponding materials for each module, which will basically consist of the subject texts.
Furthermore, in order to complete the practical exercises and training, the educational version of CivilFEM powered by Marc will be provided by the course.
The course uses a virtual classroom as a training facility where study tools can be found and also as the main communication channel with the attendees.
Other tools will also be used, including audiovisual resources as well as other supplementary documentation.
The teaching materials for this subject consists of:
- The Dynamic analysis with CivilFEM powered by Marc training material and related workbook exercises.
- Additional training material for the course developed by ICAEEC.
- Software: CivilFEM powered by Marc
Students will have access to a permanent educational software license of CivilFEM Powered by Marc. All the software included is 3D based and has all the elements needed to complete the various types of analysis throughout the course.
The teaching staff will respond to attendee inquiries via telephone, email, or in person. Phone tutorship’s will be available within the following hours:
Monday to Friday during office hours and always subject to tutor’s availability.
- Evaluation and Grading criteria
Attendee evaluation will be performed through the practical application exercises
Certification will consist of a diploma from ICAEEC & Ingeciber indicating successful completion of the subject by the attendee as well as the grade obtained in the practical application exercises.
