16.001 Unified Engineering: Materials and Structures


Class Info

Presents fundamental principles and methods of materials and structures for aerospace engineering, and engineering analysis and design concepts applied to aerospace systems. Topics include statics; analysis of trusses; analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate systems; stress-strain behavior of materials; analysis of beam bending, buckling, and torsion; material and structural failure, including plasticity, fracture, fatigue, and their physical causes. Experiential lab and aerospace system projects provide additional aerospace context.

This class has 18.02, 18.03, and 18.034 as prerequisites.

16.001 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by R. Radovitzky and D. L. Darmofal.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays in 32-141.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
