Sono richieste conoscenze di: Analisi matematica, Fisica generale, Meccanica razionale

L’insegnamento e’ un’introduzione al mondo della sperimentazione con particolare riferimento al settore aerospaziale. Lo studente trascorrera’ buona parte del corso in Laboratorio ad apprendere i criteri con cui si progetta, si esegue e si analizza una prova sperimentale. I concetti teorici che supportano le attivita’ sperimentali saranno presentati e discussi durante la sperimentazione. Particolare enfasi sara’ attribuita alla parte pratica dell’insegnamento.

Lo studente alla fine del corso conoscera’ le modalita’ di misura delle principali grandezze fisiche che caratterizzano la meccanica sperimentale con particolare riferimento alle strutture aerospaziali. Inoltre, comprendera’ le varie problematiche collegate alla sperimentazione e sara’ in grado di applicare in modo autonomo le conoscenze acquisite alla definizione di una prova sperimentale. Lo studente acquisira’ la capacita’ di esporre in modo chiaro e dettagliato quali sono i principi su cui si basa una tipica procedura sperimentale.

Il metodo didattico principale sara’ la dimostrazione pratica in laboratorio di come si svolge una misura ed, in generale, una complessa prova sperimentale.

L’esame consistera’ in una prova sperimentale da progettare, eseguire e analizzare in laboratorio.

Misure ed incertezze relative alla misura. La misura degli spostamenti, delle velocita’ e delle accelerazioni. Misure di forza. Misure di deformazioni. Gli standard internazionali relativi alle prove. Le prove di caratterizzazione del materiale: come ottenere le curve tensione-deformazione dei materiali. Le prove statiche. Esempio di prova statica: un giunto rivettato. I giunti adesivi. Prove statiche di interesse aeronautico: la certificazione delle strutture aeronautiche a carico limite e a carico ultimo. Prova di buckling. Compression buckling. Shear buckling. La tensione diagonale: la trave di Wagner in teoria ed in pratica. Analisi dinamiche: frequenze naturali e modi propri di vibrare di una trave. I controlli non distruttivi nel settore aeronautico. Gli ultrasuoni per l’ispezione dell’integrita’ strutturale.

It is aimed at providing principles and tools to solve structural problems concerning the main parts of aerospace vehicles under the action of typical mission loads. Elements of Aeroelasticity and Fatigue are also provided

At the end of the course the student is expected to:

1) understand the criteria of choosing aerospace architecture and materials;

2) understand the design rules for aircraft of different size;

3) elaborate a lumped parameters structural equivalent model for preliminary computations;

4) understand the numbers coming out from the computation;

5) have a global view on the overall structural issues of a typical flying vehicle.

Two basic appraoches are followed:

- standard class lectures, where the teacher presents methods and models; students are encouraged to participate by discussing validity of the assumptions at the basis of the models and physical meanings of the results derived from the analysis performed. Example: derive the structural model of a typical wing;

- tutorial classes, during which problems are stated, where the students refine their understanding, by numerically solving the structural problems; the teacher supports the class by recalling relevant models and highlighting the procedure; some calculations (e.g. for a different set of parameters) can be proposed to the students as homework. Example: evaluate stress and displacement filed for a typical wing subjected to operating loads.

The exam consists of two separate parts:

the first part is written and is based on the solution of three typical structural schemes of aerospace interest;

the second part is oral and is based on all the topics presented and discussed by the teacher in the classroom. The student must be able to talk about these topics demonstrating to know in detail the associated structural issues.

Exams are performed according to current University regulations (3 exams at the end of each semester, 1 exam in September, 2 extraordinaty exams for students who finished the regular course).
