COMPUTER AIDED ENGINEERING (ANSYS)

EMS5CAE

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, fundamental knowledge of basic concepts such as data structures, and computational complexity will be illustrated in a manner that enables students to develop a comprehensive understanding of how to integrate different tools in a real business environment. Topics covered include common software platforms available to perform the engineering design, modelling, manufacturing and control. Principles of modelling and analysing, such as FEA (Finite Element Analysis);CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) based on ANSYS will also be briefly introduced. Upon successful completion of this subject, students will have developed a range of skills which will allow them to comprehend and effectively design engineering systems, using modern CAE tools, in a real-world industrial setting.
