Course detail: Stress Analysis for Aerospace Structures - ONLINE

Description
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.

Highlights
  • 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
