Nonlinear Finite Element Methods




  University of Colorado - Dept of Aerospace Engineering Sciences
               Course Prerequisites

An advanced, graduate-elective course offered every
2 years (occasionally 3). Primarily a continuation of
ASEN 5007: Introduction to Finite Element Methods (IFEM)

Prerequisites:
  A graduate-level intro course in FEM
  Uses Linear Algebra & Differential Equations
  at a deeper level than IFEM

Prior experience in solving nonlinear equations
helpful but not required
