structures

The structures groups are responsible for the material selection, structural design and analysis, construction method selection, and CAD of the aircraft.

  • Members in the structures groups make trade-off design decisions between configurations, material properties, and construction methods used.
  • Students gain experience in design for manufacturing, CAD modeling in SolidWorks, Finite Element Analysis, and structural testing.
