COURSE OBJECTIVES
The purpose of this course is to provide engineers, scientists, and 
researchers with a critical survey of the state-of-the-art of finite 
element methods in solids, structures, and fluids, with an emphasis on 
methodologies and applications for nonlinear problems. The fundamental 
theoretical background, the computer implementation of various
techniques 
and modeling strategies will be treated. Advantages and shortcomings of 
alternative methods and the practical implications of recent research 
developments will be stressed. Recent mathematical and algorithmic 
developments will be explained in terms comprehensible to engineers.

WHO ATTENDS
This seminar is designed for engineers in industry, government, and 
academia who are interested in learning the most recent developments in 
finite element methods. A background in engineering or applied sciences
and 
some previous exposure to finite element methods are necessary for 
understanding the material covered in this course. The course has been 
offered annually in the U.S. and Europe since 1985. The attendees are 
engineers and scientists from: corporations, such as General Motors,
Ford, 
Daimler Benz, Fujitsu, IBM; software companies; government laboratories, 
such as Livermore, Argonne, Sandia; government offices, such as NSF and
the 
Defense Nuclear Agency; U.S. Navy and Air Force Laboratories, and
universities.
