ESDU Strength Analysis of Struts and Beams Segment
This Segment gives comprehensive and continually expanding, rigorously evaluated information for the strength analysis of lightweight structures such as those used in aerospace.
Data are given on elastic or inelastic stresses, strains, displacements or buckling loads under static loading. They range from general data to the analysis of specific struts and beams in metallic or composite structures.
The range of configurations and geometries gives a comprehensive selection that will meet the structural analyst's idealisation needs. Thus it will allow both detailed, accurate analyses of critical components, and initial estimates, with appropriate idealisation, that will facilitate the economic use of finite element or other expensive computational techniques on problems where no specific analysis is currently available.
The Strength Analysis of Struts and Beams Segment focuses on:
