The aim of the course is to provide the basis for the comprehension of the methods and procedures the finite element method and the multi body analysis are based on. The basic knowledge acquired during the course will give the student the possibility to explore the possible applications of the methods to solve engineering problems with particular attention to the structural field.

The basic knowledge acquired during the course will give the student the possibility to explore the possible applications of the methods to solve engineering problems with particular attention to the structural field.
Students attending the course will learn about the wide capabilities of the numerical methods in the virtual simulation of the behaviour of structures and automotive systems. On successfully completing this course unit, students will be able to solve structural (static and dynamic) problems of simple complexity by using commercial codes widely present in industries. For example, they will be able to: - prepare the numerical models of simple structures and multi body systems - set up the boundary conditions for static and quasi-static analyses - critically analyse the results of a virtual simulation and verify their reliability

Students attending the course must have the basic knowledge of geometry and numerical calculation. Moreover, they should be able to: - evaluate the static equilibrium of frames with prescribed boundary conditions - evaluate the stress and strain state of loaded beams within frameworks - analyse kinematics and dynamics of a single rigid body

The course is organized in frontal lectures, classroom practices and laboratory practices. The frontal lectures concern the theory part of the course syllabus. The classroom practices concern the execution of exercises on the matrix calculus. These exercises are preparatory for a part of the exam. The laboratory practices concern the dynamic solution of multi-body systems by using both Matlab and a commercial software devoted to the MBD simulation. All the parts in which the course is structured can be followed without significant differences in presence or remotely.
