Finite Element - Houston-Downtown 3/4 Progress Report

From:Andrea Struve SALAMANCA_A@UHDVX3.DT.UH.EDU

During this week we received The AutoCAD drawing of the Landing gear from Lamar.

We started analysing it, studying how it works. After this examination we will proceed to do the finite element analysis in ansys. We are planning to analyse the structure as if it were made out of Aluminum and later analyse it with the composite material that Lamar has planned for it.

We are also testing some composites at the Lab.
