## AE403E - Mechanics of materials

### Objectives

#### 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.

#### Detailed objectives:

At the end of the course the student will be able to :

- calculate the stress and the strain due to traction/compression, bending moment, transverse force and torsion torque for beams under simplified loading.

- calculate the stress in structural joints joints
