Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads - 5 Day Course

14-18 July 2014, Bristol (UK)

The course is being run as part of the EU funded ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation) Marie-Curie Initial Training Network.

Course Objectives:

  • To introduce the main concepts of Aeroelasticity and Loads, and the multi-disciplinary methods needed for their study
  • To provide an understanding of the main principles of Aeroelasticity and Loads analysis by:
    • using simple mathematical models to illustrate basic theoretical concepts,
    • showing the maths – but not explaining all of the detail and derivations, instead focusing on the connection with the physics introducing relevant terminology and methods, and
    • explaining the analysis, testing and certification processes used by the aerospace industry
  • To include examples on some of the key topics.
