Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads

14 July 2014, 10.00 AM - 14 July 2014, 10.00 AM

Venue: LT 1.15, Queen’s Building, University Walk, University of Bristol, BS8 1TR. Speak: Professor Jonathan Cooper

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:

  • 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

Course Content:

To include examples on some of the key topics:

The course will be based upon the Wiley text "Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads" and a short course that has been run in industry over the last five years consisting of a combination of lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions. 

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

Course Tutors:

Professor Jonathan Cooper – University of Bristol

Professor Jan Wright  - Emeritus Professor University of Manchester

Course fee:

£250 University students and academics

£600 Industrial participants

(Fee includes all course materials, lunches and tea/coffee.)
