How to prepare for Aerospace Structures or Flight Structures of GATE Aerospace Engineering paper

Aerospace-structures or Flight Structures is key section of GATE Aerospace Engineering, this section includes in static section basics of strength of material and analysis of thin-walled structures and in dynamic section basics of vibrations.

Around 7-10 problems for static and 2-4 problems for dynamics are asked in every GATE Aerospace paper from this portion and has weight-age up to 20 marks

It has following topics

Static section of Aerospace structures of GATE Aerospace has following topics

·        Basics of Stress, Strain and Stress-Strain Relations

·        Axially loaded members- Bar/Rod

·        Torsion of Rod/Bar/Shaft

·        Shear force and Bending Moment Diagram

·        Bending and Shear Stresses in the Beam

·        Deflection of the Beams

·        Buckling of Coulmn

·        Thin shells

·        Theory of Failures

·        Bending of thinwalled structures/unsymmetricalbending

·        Shear of thinwalled structures/Shear centerproblems

·        Torsion of thinwalled structures/Breathbethotheory

Dynamic section of Aerostructures of GATE Aerospace hasfollowing topics

·        Free vibration

·        Damped free vibration

·        Forced vibration

·        Multi-degree of vibration

·        Continous vibration

Complete understanding of Aerostructures depends on onlythree things

·        Basic sign conventions

·        Free body Diagram

·        Equilibruim

If anyone learn these three concepts thoroughly can masterthe Aerospace structures of GATE Aerospace

We suggest following reference which is only sufficient andrequired for preparation

Mechanics of Materials by J.GERE

Aircraft Structures by THG Megson

Mechanical Vibration by Meirovitch and for problem practice- VP singh


Also, GATE Aspirant can go through our Sample GATE Aerospace Study Material.
