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, 8.01, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

16.001 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by D. L. Darmofal and R. Radovitzky.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Mondays in 35-225.
