Aircraft Structural Analysis (EGR455)

PREREQUISITE COURSES FOR Aircraft Structural Analysis

Course Memo

In this course an attempt is made to emphasize basic structural theory related to the aircraft design. Heavy emphasis is placed on the application of the elementary principles of mechanics to the analysis of aircraft structures. This course will cover topics on shear and bending stresses, spanwise air-load distribution, external load on the airplane, joints and fittings, design of members in tension, bending and torsion, design of webs in shear and deflections of structures. Prerequisites: EGR225, EGR340
