Aerospace Engineering

The Department of Aerospace Engineering seeks to instruct the design, analysis, testing, and operation of vehicles which operate in air, water, or space, including studies of aerodynamics, structure mechanics, propulsion, and the like.

History
The Department of Aerospace Engineering was organized as the Department of Aeronautical Engineering in 1942. Its name was changed to the Department of Aerospace Engineering in 1961. In 1990, the department absorbed the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics and became the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. In 2003 the name was changed back to the Department of Aerospace Engineering.

Abstract

It has long been postulated that vibrothermographic heating—the heating of cracks due to sound or vibration‐induced rubbing—may be frequency dependent. It has been difficult to factor out the innate frequency dependence of the heat‐generation process from the geometry‐dependent mode structure. We present experiments showing the heating of cracks in slender Inconel∕Titanium specimens at transverse resonance. Different resonant modes vibrate at different frequencies but load the crack in the same way (Mode I). The results show a clear increase of heating with vibration frequency.
