Teaching description

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

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

Capability of developing a finite element model for structural applications
Capability of interpretation of the numerical results

Capability of debugging numerical models
Knowledge of the certification process in the aeronautical field
Knowledge of how a structural certification test is carried out

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.
