AE4008 - Strength of materials - Cell


General objective:

At the end of the course the student will be able to:
-identify and describe different charges applied to a cell;
-define and describe basic concepts of material resistance (beam model, constraints calculation, dimensioning of simple structures, buckling);
-quote and describe a general structure of different parts of a cell, explain the reasons that conducted to this particular design;
-quote and describe materials used in aeronautical construction (their properties, specificities and choice criteria);
-describe and explain differences between failure modes in statics and fatigue, know their respective mechanisms, make simple calculation of fatigue damage.
