2015 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition Proceedings   unpublished
Engineering analysis and design topics in a senior-level aerospace structural design course are supplemented with simple in-class demonstrations, hands-on experience in sheet-metal fabrication, and a comprehensive engineering project involving design, analysis, optimization, manufacturing, and testing of stiffened panels. Besides providing students with opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts discussed in the course, they are introduced to other important aspects of
