Course Description

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS, ME W167

Presents introductory matrix methods for analysis of structures. Topics include review of matrix algebra and linear equations, basic structuraltheorms including the principle of superposition and energy theorms, truss bar, bean and plane frame elements, and programming techniques to realize these concepts.

Henry Yang
Henry T. Yang was named UC Santa Barbara’s fifth chancellor in 1994. He was formerly the Neil A. Armstrong Distinguished Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University, where he also served as the dean of engineering for ten years.
 
Dr. Yang is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the American Society for Engineering Education, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He has received a number of recognitions for his research, teaching, and public service, including seven honorary doctorates and the Benjamin Garver Lamme Medal from the American Society of Engineering Education. In 2008 he received the Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
 
He has served on scientific advisory boards for the Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, NASA, and National Science Foundation. He is a past chair of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities and the Association of American Universities. He serves on the President’s Committee for the National Medal of Science and the Kavli Foundation board, and is chairman of the board for the Thirty Meter Telescope project.
 
Dr. Yang specializes in aerospace structures, structural dynamics, composite materials, finite elements, transonic aeroelasticity, wind and earthquake structural engineering, and intelligent manufacturing systems. He has authored or co-authored more than 170 articles for scientific journals, as well as a widely used textbook on finite element structural analysis. He has guided 54 Ph.D. and 20 M.S. recipients. He continues to teach an undergraduate course every year, and is currently guiding three Ph.D. students with support from National Science Foundation grants. In 2007 he received an honorary distinguished teaching award from UCSB’s Academic Senate.
