Course detail: AERO0480 - Stress Analysis for Aerospace Structures
This course is designed for the practicing engineer who has an interest in the various aspects of stress analysis in aerospace structural-mechanical design and would like to enhance his or her expertise in this important field. The approach taken in this course is to start with a strong theoretical foundation and then build upon that foundation with practical applications that can be immediately put into practice in the workplace. In this manner, both the theory and practice of classical "hand" analysis techniques are presented as well as the more modern (numerical/computational) methods used in the industry. The subject-matter difficulty level is intermediate.

  • Introductory topics
  • Engineering mechanics review
  • Energy methods in mechanical analysis
  • Failure prevention of engineering materials
  • Fundamentals of deterministic stress analysis
  • Analysis of bolted joints
  • Fatigue analysis in mechanical design
  • Numerical optimization
Who Should Attend?
  • Design engineers who would like to become more familiar with the techniques and modern practices of stress analysis to help them be more efficient and productive in their work.
  • Mechanical engineers who have been out of college for a while and need to become more knowledgeable in the area of stress analysis due to a particular job assignment or new career opportunity that requires expertise in analyzing structures.
  • Department managers whose staff are involved in stress analysis work.
