MANE 4900 - Aeroelasticity and Structural Vibrations

Basic concepts in static and dynamic aeroelasticity. Structural vibrations, free and forced motion of discrete and continuous structures, introduction to modal analysis, and use of materials for dynamics tailoring. Aeroelastic behavior of complex structures, dynamic aeroelasticity. The phenomena of divergence, control surface effectiveness, and flutter and the use of composite materials for aeroelastic tailoring.  The role of numerical methods will be emphasized.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: MATH 2400, MANE 2060 and MANE 4060 or equivalent.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
