    • The structural design is an important part for the research and development of aircraft. It aims to produce the lightest structure scheme which satisfies the safety, reliability and economy. To achieve this goal, it needs for the design of load transferring in structures, stress analysis, judgement of structural failure, and so on. Structural Mechanics is to develop the knowledge and ability required for these jobs. It is a professional basic course for the major of aircraft design. The prerequisite courses are Material Mechanics and Theoretical Mechanics.
      The main contents of this course include basic elasticity, stress calculation of typical structural parts, bending of thin plate, stability of thin-walled structure, external load of aircraft, thin-walled beam theory, and the internal force calculation of the spar, wing and fuselage. A curriculum design is required at the end of semester.
      The core purpose of this course is to equip students with the basic capabilities of aircraft structural modeling and calculation. Through the studying of this course students can understand the requirements of aircraft structural design and process, mechanical characteristics of aircraft structure, the method to simplifying and calculating. They are going to have the ability to complete the preliminary design, the stress analysis and the instability determination on the aircraft structural component. Through the curriculum design, they will also get exercises on teamwork, expression, references organization and report writing.
