About the course
This course examines applied design and analysis of aircraft structures. You’ll study the margin of safety concept and the proper use of local and far-field stresses, as well as failure criteria and interaction method for combined loads. You’ll learn how design values for aircraft structures can be related to coupon allowables or empirically determined based on full-scale tests.
We’ll also analyze aircraft element and built-up structures under tensile, compressive, shear and combined loads and scrutinize fasteners, joints, fittings and lugs. Discover how to compete a fatigue analysis of simple details using classical and BCA approaches.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
- Failure theories and the margin of safety concept
- Analysis methods for buckling and crippling
- Best practices for evaluating joints, lugs and fittings
- Standards for tension and compression panels
- Analysis of SR, PDT and IDT shear beams
GET HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE
You’ll continue work on the design project started in the Design & Analysis of Aircraft Structures - Fundamentals course and prepare for preliminary and final design reviews.
