This is an introductory course in the finite element method (FEM). The focus is on understanding the basics and being able to code a finite element solver for linear equations. The course starts slowly with one-dimensional problems and picks pace over two and three-dimensional problems as familiarity with the method is gained. 

While the course is slightly biased towards civil and mechanical engineering problems such as stress analysis, flow in porous media, and heat conduction, the ideas and codes can be used to simulate other engineering problems which are governed by mathematically analogous equations: chemical diffusion, electrostatics, acoustics and other problems which are modeled by Poisson type equations.

Lecture notes and example computer codes will be provided.

The course aims to introduce students on the importance of drainage related problems for crop production, principles of designing surface and subsurface drainage systems in order to overcome the twin menaces of irrigated agriculture.

Upon completion of the course,

1. Students will have a sound understanding of the problems associated with water logging and salinity,

2. Students will be able to design surface and subsurface drainage system,

3. Students will be able to develop alternative approaches in managing water logging problems of heavy soils and salinity related problems of irrigated agriculture.

4. Students will be aware of the potential of drainage water for storage and reuse during the dry season and/or using excess water for artificial groundwater recharge
