Structural Analysis of Bolted Joints
What you'll learn
- Stress analysis of bolted joints
- Basic understanding of mechanical engineering principles
Learn how to analyse bolted joints using a range of methods that suit your application. From the basic anatomy of a bolted joint through to the loads and stresses and how to assess them in a design; this course will build a firm foundation allowing you to take your first steps in sizing a real structural joint. Whatever your reason for conducting a strength assessment of a mechanically fastened joint, you will find a suitable approach to get the answers you need and valuable resources to help you get there quickly.
Who this course is for:
- Engineers curious about current practice to analyse bolted joints
Ian is a consultant Stress Engineer to the aircraft industry and is keen to pass on his knowledge and experience to the new generation of engineers making their way from school, college or university into the exciting new age of aerospace and structural engineering. His work over the last four decades took him into some of the largest aerospace giants around the world like British Aerospace, Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed, Bombardier, Snecma, Sikorsky, Rolls Royce etc....
He has been working as a consultant stress analyst around Europe and the US consistently for many years, and is now taking all that he has learned, to teach engineering skills and to help you discover the amazing career opportunities that being a stress analyst can bring you.
Having been a hands on stress engineer for that amount of time, he understands that there is a large volume of very mediocre online courses, tutorials and books that don't really convey the essential subject matter that is needed in the actual workplace.
Most people get overwhelmed and find it almost impossible to know where to start learning what is, and let's be honest, a complex field of engineering.
Course material needs to be aimed firmly at developing real life and up to date skills that will be needed in the workplace from the very start of your new found career as a stress engineer. Having developed important skills while on the front line in the product development teams of the most significant aerospace primes, he is now focused on teaching others valuable stress engineering methods so that they will feel confident embarking on a career in a very dynamic and challenging industry.
Ian commits to providing a suite of stress analysis courses professionally delivered and unrivalled in their breadth and depth being structured on three levels of complexity to meet basic, detailed and expert requirements. He believes that in order to learn anything of value, you need to start with the foundation and develop from there. With this approach rapid progress is to be expected.
Using his experience in aircraft stress analysis, finite element modelling and composite materials, Ian's courses will help you achieve a level of understanding that will not fail to impress you.
He is looking forward to joining you in this important venture you are about to undertake!
