Rigid Body and Structural Dynamics

Module code: EG3125

This advanced specialist module will enable you to extend your knowledge of engineering dynamics to tackle more advanced dynamics problems. You'll learn how to use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulations to analyse how structures respond to loads that change rapidly, and to analyse the effect of vibration on structures like aircraft wings and spacecraft components.
