Computers in Education
Traditionally, the study of Mechanical Behavior of Materials class relies on solving analytical solution using a piece of paper and pen. With the advance of computer simulations, both hardware and software, there is a need to advance the education with adoption of advanced computer technologies. In this project, we recently developed a new project-based finite element modeling module in Mechanical Behavior of Materials class. Specifically, students are required to identify a project which requires to using a commercial finite element software package to simulate the mechanical response of the system. The student evaluation of this project work was very positive and encouraging. The revised engineering course becomes increasingly popular with continued growth of enrollment. The paper will elaborate on the student outcomes and summarize the student evaluation results.
