  This website supports the text-based capstone experience exposing finite element analysis with computing practice.  Accuracy, convergence and stability studies are Matlab-enabled using .m files keyed to the FEmPSE toolbox download.  Discipline-specific design optimization studies employ the accessible COMSOL Multi-Physics Problem Solving Environment (PSE) .mph files.  

Via the top left hotlink nest access:

Course Calendar: correlates text lecture content
