Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads
To introduce the main concepts of Aeroelasticity and Loads, and the multi-disciplinary methods needed for their study
To provide an understanding of the main principles of Aeroelasticity and Loads analysis:
- using simple mathematical models to illustrate basic theoretical concepts,
- showing the maths – but not explaining all of the detail and derivations, instead focusing on the connection with the physics
- introducing relevant terminology and methods, and
- explaining the analysis, testing and certification processes used by the aerospace industry
To include examples on some of the key topics:
The course will be based upon the Wiley text "Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads" and a short course that has been run in industry over the last five years consisting of a combination of lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions.
The course is being run as part of the EU funded ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation) Marie-Curie Initial Training Network.
