Welcome to the RAeS Structures & Materials Group

The aim of the Structures and Materials Group is to assist the Society and its members to understand the complex subjects of material use and structural design and analysis (including statics, dynamics and aeroelastics). It also covers the areas of manufacturing and testing in as much as this effects material and design requirements. The scope extends to cover advanced CAD, CAM and CAE tools and includes Multidisciplinary Design Optimisation methodology and application. New materials development is considered in relation to its influence on structural efficiency and integrity, aeroelastic performance and production processes.

The Group also supplies the UK representative on the CEAS Structures and Materials Technical Committee. The Group organises a number of national and international conferences which cover the various topics in its remit.
