Hello all, I am going to start my masters in the field of computational engineering so there are subjects like FEM,CFD etc. so would like to learn prerequisites for the FEM like mathematics behind it so anybody has any idea what should be learned or anybody has any online source for learning FEM.

Thank you

Hi @ramky,

Glad to hear that you are getting into the field!

The first step would be to get a grasp on the overall idea of FEA, then dive into the ideas of the different types like static/dynamics, CFD, SPH, heat transfer, vibrations ect. and focus on what you will be working with for your Masters. It would be impossible to master all of them in a year or two so you might as well focus on what will be relevant to you.

After that, look into what FEA software your program has available or would be best for your research (LS-Dyna, ANSYS, Abaqus ect.) and start practicing with that program.

Post any questions that you have here and someone will be happy to answer them!
