Brief Summary of ProposalPrerequisites: 4300:202 Mechanics of Solids and 3450:335 Differential Equations or permission by instructor. This course emphasizes basic theory and methods needed to analyze and design aerospace structures. Simple two-dimensional elasticity is covered and used in the treatment of torsion of non-circular sections, including open, closed, and multi thin-walled cells. Unsymmetric bending of and flexural shear flow in thin-walled beams are included. Failure analysis of aerospace structural components includes buckling or structural instability, yielding, fracture, fracture mechanics and fatigue. The postbuckling strength of bars and panels are also covered at an elementary level. ******Proposal Contacts: Dr. Jerry Drummond / Dr. Michelle Hoo Fatt
