Summary

 

Course/Module

Organiser, Group Design Project. (Short Courses)

Computational Mechanics - AERO70009

Aims

This module builds on the optional Finite Elements module and introduces advanced concepts in the application of the finite element method to the analysis of aerostructures. It explores the basics of non-linear structural analysis and relevant solution methods based on the finite element method and introduces the Boundary Element Method for two-dimensional potential, elastostatic and acoustic problems.

Role

Lecturer

Emerging Technology for Green Aviation - AERO70031

Aims

The aim is to introduce the key technological advances, and the corresponding underlying principles, for a greener aviation. This includes the potential advantages of alternative configurations, flow control and drag-reduction using both active and passive systems, load alleviation systems and structural weight-reduction strategies and aircraft end of life and recycling. The module will consist of timetabled lectures and tutorials, delivered by academics with the relevant research expertise. 

Role

Lecturer

Structural Dynamics - AERO97007

Aims

This course aims to present available methodologies for solving dynamic problems on aerospace structures, to introduce the underlying theory and basic considerations for the numerical modelling of response of structures to time-dependent loads, including those coming from the aerodynamics in aerial vehicles, and to present computer-based techniques to solve for the linear and non-linear dynamic response of structures
