A course assignment handed in before deadline, presented in class and approved. The course assignment will be solved in Ansys Workbench. The course assignment is done in groups. Each group component answers to all statements and assumptions given in the handed in assignment.

__Type of examination:__

Individual oral examination about the theory of FEM based upon a subject found by draw.

Examination accounts for 100% of the final grade

Duration: 20 minutes

Censor: External__Allowed tools: __

The lecturer will provide 1 sheet of paper with a few FEM related notes that the students may use along the examination (such material will be shared with the students in advance)
