Aeroplanes of the Royal Aircraft Factory (Crowood Aviation by Paul Hare

By Paul Hare

The Army's Balloon manufacturing unit relocated to Farnborough in 1904 and used to be renamed the Royal airplane manufacturing facility in 1912, changing into a fix facility for broken aeroplanes. it is a historical past of the manufacturing facility, from the early ballooning and kite experiments to the bold SE5.

35], the stiffness influence coefficient kij is defined as the force needed at node i (in the direction of ui) to produce a unit displacement at node j (uj = 1) while all other nodes are restrained. This definition can be used to generate the matrix [K (e)]. 11(d), we induce a force (k11) equal to3 Ae = ðAe Ee /le Þ at node 1 and a force (k21) equal to −ðAe Ee /le Þ at node 2. Similarly, we can obtain the values of k22 and k12 as ðAe Ee /le Þ and −ðAe Ee /le Þ, respectively, by giving a unit displacement to node 2 and restraining node 1.

Checking the Results of FEA It is extremely important to check the results given by the FEA software. Usually a simpler version of the actual problem is to be solved using the software so that the results can be compared with known solutions (obtained by other methods such as a simplified analysis technique). In addition, the analyst must ensure that the results agree with engineering intuition and behavior. Also, one needs to verify whether the solution satisfies the specified boundary and symmetry conditions.
