AbstractTeams of 2 to 4 students have to design, size, and manufacture a lightweight structre complying with given specifications. A prototype as well as an improved component will be tested and assessed regarding to design and to structural mechanical criteria.
ObjectiveTo develop the skills to identify and solve typical problems of the structure mechanics on a real application. Other important aspects are to foster team work and team spirit, to link theoretical knowledge and practice, to gather practical experiences in various fields related to lightweight structures such as design, different CAE-methods and structural testing.
ContentThe task of each team (typically 2-4 students) is the realization of a load-carrying structure with selected materials. The teams are free to develop and implement their own ideas. In this context, specified requirements include information about loads, interface to the surrounding structures.

The project is structured as described below:
- Concept development
- design of the component including FEM simulation and stability checks
- manufacturing and structural testing of a prototype
- manufacturing and structural testing of an improved component
- Report

The project work is supported by selected teaching units.
Lecture noteshandouts for selected topics are available
