2 Course Layout Shear flow analysis for thin walled sections Structural failure assessment Buckling analysis Main Topics covered are:
3 Shear flow analysis for thin walled sections Shear flow in open sections Shear flow in closed sections Shear Centre On completion of this part you should have gained an understanding of thin walled aircraft structures under general loading conditions. It will allow you to assess the effect of aerodynamic loading on the performance of an aircraft design. Text book: Aircraft Structures by T.H.G.Megson This is the extension of beam theory (1 st year) to thin walled sections. The topics covered include: Loading

6 Aircraft Structures An aircraft structure performs two essential functions: 1. It maintains the aerodynamic shape and contain the content 2. It transmits and resists loads applied to its surface Aircraft structures are usually made of stiffened shells. An unstiffened shell monocoque shell of large cross-section would require fairly thick walls to avoid buckling of the skin. Hence a Semi-monocoque construction plays is usually used in which stiffeners play an important role, allowing a thinner skin to be used.

9 Review of Classical Beam Theory Classical beam theory assumes that a beam is a member that is long in one direction and short in the other two directions, the member has a high aspect ratio.
