    This file contains the most important Aircraft Stress Analysis & Structural Design equations. You can use it as the formula sheet you may take with you on your exam.

Summary Grade: 7.4

The summaries below contain summarized explanations about the subjects discussed during the lectures. Keep in mind that the order of the summary is entirely different from the order of the lectures. By the way, the first three chapters are the most important ones. Focus on those.

  • Trusses (133kb)
    What methods do we need to analyze statically (in)determinate trusses? How do we find the stresses and displacements? Read it in this chapter.
  • Beams (92kb)
    Here you can find how beams can be analyzed. Discover the world of flexibility coefficients.
  • Plates (112kb)
    Plates are subject to stresses in multiple directions. How those stresses relate to each other can be found here.
  • Designing (55kb)
    In this chapter you can find specific data on designing something. What things do you need to consider? And how do you analyze a design?
  • Loads and Failures (58kb)
    How can structures fail and under what loads will they do so? You can find it here.

Reader Grade: 5.8

In a previous year, this course used a reader. Although the course now uses a wiki, some people still prefer to use the reader. That's why it is put here.
