Monash University Handbook 2010 Postgraduate - Unit

6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL

LevelPostgraduate
FacultyFaculty of Engineering
OfferedClayton Second semester 2010 (Day)
Coordinator(s)B Falzon

Synopsis

This unit extends previous studies on isotropic (metal) structures in solid mechanics and related areas to embrace the anisotropic mechanical properties of composite materials, with an emphasis on the analysis and design of composite structures. These principles will be further extended to composite airframes. The unit complements the corequisite MAE5402 thereby allowing a mature understanding of the potential synergy between structural forms and materials of construction.

Objectives

The development and integration of students' knowledge of conventional engineering materials based on previous study leading towards an understanding of composite structures with particular reference to composite airframes.
