AAE 55300 - Elasticity In Aerospace Engineering


Credit Hours: 3.00. A basic course in the theory of elasticity with emphasis on understanding the fundamental principles and solution techniques used in the stress analysis of structures. Cartesian tensors. Governing equations for linear elasticity. Rigorous derivation of beam and plate equations from the three-dimensional elasticity equations. Torsion. Thermoelasticity. The stress functions and complex functions approaches to two-dimensional problems. Energy methods and approximate solutions. Three-dimensional problems. Knowledge of differential equations assumed. Typically offered Fall.
