Fall 2010 Engr 3399: Mechanical And Aerospace Systems I: Course Material: Assignment 3, Christopher Lee Aug 2011

Fall 2010 Engr 3399: Mechanical And Aerospace Systems I: Course Material: Assignment 3, Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee

Techniques for the design and analysis of mechanical and aerospace systems are studied through case projects that involve both computational analysis and experimental measurements. Topics will be selected from a range of possible topics such as vibration analysis, flexible body dynamics, aerodynamics, and aeroelasticity. Projects may include the design and construction of vibration absorbers or ambient vibration energy harvesting systems, the dynamics and stability of aerospace vehicles, lift and drag of airfoils, the control of flutter instabilities of elastic structures, the design and flight testing of a lighter-than-air-vehicle, or mission planning of aeronautical or aerospace systems.

Spring 2011 Engr 3399: Mechanical And Aerospace Systems Ii: Course Materials: Assignment 7, Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee

A student team will work in the manner of a small engineering research and development company to develop a mechanical or aerospace system to address a current market need. A comprehensive system design will be developed based upon quantitative analysis using commercial simulation software. Prototypes systems will be fabricated, evaluated and refined to meet performance objectives. This semester will focus on the design and fabrication of a 'perching' landing gear system for a small autonomous or remotely controlled air vehicle. The landing gear will enable the air vehicle to grab a hold of and land upon tree branches. Mechanical aspects ...

Spring 2011: Engr 2320: Mechanics Of Solids And Structures: Information About Course: Course Syllabus, Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee

This course covers the principles of statics of structures and mechanics of materials. The focus is on the concepts of stress and strain as related to applied loads (axial, shear, torsion, bending) and to resulting deformation. Students will learn how the principles of mechanics can be applied to mechanical design through modeling, quantitative analysis, strain gauge measurements, and computational simulation. The use of a commercial finite element package is introduced.
