AE 6216 - Structural Stability

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course presents structural stability analysis for members and multistory frames. Topics include torsional buckling of beams; plate buckling; modeling structural stability with the finite element method; and post-buckling behavior. (prereq: AE 6210  or CV 6210 )
