This comprehensive 2-day course covers: an introduction to design philosophy and criteria; airframe configuration; margin of safety concept; validation and testing; materials, material selection, design allowables and values; failure theories and interaction methods; fundamental concepts including load paths; free body
diagrams; idealization and classical, empirical and finite element analysis methods. This course also includes design of structures under tensile, compressive, shear, and combined loads, and design of joints, fittings, and lugs. An introduction to design for fail
safety, durability and damage tolerance is also presented. Design and analysis competencies are also discussed. The course includes practice problems and a design project.
- Explain the design and analysis competencies
- Describe airplane configurations and load paths
- Describe design criteria and its evolution
- Explain the verification and validation process
- Explain design drivers for various components
- Select material for an airplane part or component
- Describe various analytical, empirical and finite element methods
- Recognize differences between metals and composites
- Explain failure theories and margin of safety calculation
Who Should Attend
This course is for those industry engineers in airplane design, analysis or support and government agency engineers, as well as Manufacturing support or fleet support engineers. Aerospace engineers, mechanical engineers and civil engineers would most
benefit from this course.
Mohaghegh has worked for The Boeing Company for 50 years on programs, core groups, product development and airplane support groups. He is a Boeing Technical Fellow in aircraft structures and materials and presently the Chief Editor of the Boeing Company
Design Principles Manuals. Mike is an affiliate faculty member in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and is the Director of Modern Aircraft Structures Certificate Program at the University of Washington. He graduated from the University of California (Berkeley) with a BS and MS and
University of Washington with a PhD in Civil Engineering. He did post-doctoral research in Failure Analysis at the University of Washington. He has published numerous papers and developed and taught many courses in aircraft structures and materials.

Course notes will be made available about one week prior to the course event. You will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to access your course notes. Since these notes will not be distributed on site, AIAA and your course instructor highly recommend that you bring your computer with the
course notes already downloaded.
- Registration will open in September 2018.
