THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics ASE 365 STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS SPRING 2010 SYLLABUS Unique Number: 13330 Instructor: Jeffrey K. Bennighof Office: WRW 308B Phone: 471-4709 Email: [email protected] Office Hours: 11:00-12:00 MWF Time: MWF 2:00-3:00 Location: ECJ 1.204 Teaching Assistant: Rohan Mahadik Office: WRW 214 Office Hours: TBA Web Page: (download lecture notes, etc., from courses.utexas.edu) Catalog Description: Discrete and continuous models of structures; analysis of transient and steady-state responses;  design of dynamic structures by analytical and computer methods. Course Objectives: Many aerospace structures are subjected to time-varying loadings, including impact and cyclic excitations. Dynamic response to these loadings can have a character very different from static response. This dynamic behavior must be anticipated in the design of the structure if its performance is to be satisfactory. In this course, we will learn how to represent dynamic behavior of structures mathematically, and how to solve equations of motion to determine how structures will respond dynamically. We will begin with systems having a single degree of freedom, then consider systems with multiple degrees of freedom, and finally examine systems with an infinite number of degrees of freedom. We will study response to a variety of types of excitations using a number of analysis methods. Prerequisite: Linear System Theory (ASE 330M). Knowledge, skills, and abilities students should have before entering this course: Students should have a mastery of dynamics and strength of materials resulting from successfully taking courses such as Dynamics  (EM 311M) and Mechanics of Solids (EM 319).  They should be comfortable solving ordinary differential equations and some  separable partial differential equations, and analyzing linear dynamic systems, as was done in Linear System Theory (ASE 330M).
