10 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: The course brings together analytical, computational and empirical approaches to the design and optimisation of structures and systems. A specific design is used as a thematic project in which the functional analysis and eventual synthesis are brought together. The task is such that no optimal solution is readily available. This enables the student to develop their skill in formulating analytical and computational models and evaluating them so as to develop an optimal design solution.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to students studying Aerospace Engineering degree programmes.

Staff Contact: Sarah Power
Teaching Methods: Lectures, Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work, Group Model Performance Test
