Introduction to Flight Mechanics (EAS 4105)
The primary areas considered are fundamental of flights, standard of atmosphere, basic aerodynamics, how aircraft fly, elements of airplane performance. principle of stability and control, and propulsion system and flight performance.
Introduction to Structural Dynamics and Aeroelasticity (EAS 4993)
The primary areas considered are structural dynamics, static aeroelasticity, and dynamic aeroelasticity. The structural dynamics material emphasizes vibration, the modal representation, and dynamic response of aircraft’s components. Aeroelastic phenomena discussed include divergence, aileron reversal, airload redistribution, unsteady aerodynamics, flutter, and elastic tailoring.
