Course Description

This Seminar is to review advanced topics related to materials and structural systems involved in aeronautics and astronautics, as well as to nurture the presentation and discussion skills. Specific topics include the numerical methods for dynamic behavior of thin-walled structures and composite/functional materials, and advanced experimental techniques for structural health monitoring.

Grading

Grading is based on the literature survey, presentation, discussion and the final report.

Course Goals

The goal is to nurture the skills to survey and discuss advanced topics in the mechanics of functional materials and structures as well as structural health monitoring, and to utilize them in carrying out the research project.
