Year CATS Level Semester CATS Value
Session 2017-18 Level 7 FHEQ Second Semester 7.5

Aims

To build upon the structural analysis methods and aerodynamics covered in the previous three years of the programme to enable static and dynamic aeroelastic analysis of low-degree-of-freedom systems by analytical and numerical methods


Learning Outcomes

Students will gain new knowledge of static and dynamic aeroelasticity

Students will achieve enhanced understanding of aerodynamics and structural analysis

Students will be more confident in analysis to solve engineering problems


Syllabus

Review of basic vibration concepts including natural frequencies, damping, free and forced vibrations, equations of motion, resonance, low-degree-freedom systems, frequencies and modes
Steady and unsteady aerofoil aerodynamics

Static aeroelasticity including torsional divergence of lifting surfaces and reversal of control surfaces
Dynamic aeroelasticity including flutter and its prevention and limit-cycle oscillation









Teaching and Learning Strategies
