MAE 3250 - Analysis of Mechanical and Aerospace Structures
Fall. (Usually offered in summer through Engineering Cooperative Program) 3 credits.
Prerequisite: MAE 2120 .
Topics in mechanics of materials applied to analysis and design of structural components encountered in mechanical and aerospace systems, including multiaxial stress states, statically indeterminate structures, torsion and bending of nonsymmetric or curved members, stability, and stress concentrations. Solution strategies include both analytical and finite element methods.
Outcome 1: Students will be able to manipulate and interpret stress and strain matrices arising from multi-axial loading.
Outcome 2: Perform elementary, two-dimensional, finite element analyses of the elastic response of mechanical components.
Outcome 3: Apply strength-of-materials approaches to applications involving bending and torsion loading modes.
Outcome 4: Relate numerical solutions to analytical solutions, where available.
