Teaching description

Knowledge of calculus, basic concepts of continuum mechanics, solid mechanics.

The course introduces to the finite elements method: basic structural schemes are developed and solved using commercial F.E.A. software. Certification issues are  analysed in the second part. The course is completed by an experience in Laboratory where a static test is designed, carried out and analysed.

Capability of developing a finite element model for aerospace structural applications

Capability of aerospace structures' engineering analysis and numerical results interpretation

Capability of debugging numerical models

Knowledge of the certification process in the aeronautical field

Knowledge of how a structural certification test is carried out

Frontal lectures

Assignments

Laboratory

Development of a FE model in classroom

Discussion of the certification issues

Introduction to the finite elements method. The Galerkin method for the discretization of structures. Resolution of a truss loaded with concentrated loads. The commercial software used for the Finite Elements models development. Simple elements. Masses. Bars. Beams. Panels. Solid models. Materials. Simple structural schemes. The loads. The boundary conditions. The different structural analyses. Linear static analysis. Normal modes analysis. Transient analysis. Buckling analysis. The interpretation of the results. The visualization of the results. Integration of CAD/CAE. Certification specifications in the aeronautical field. CS 23, CS 25, CS VLA, CS VLR. The certification documentation. Certification tests. The flutter certification. A full development of a structural component: from the requirements to the design and calculation; the manufacturing and test with the final interpretation of the numerical and experimental results.
