'Aircraft windows' simulation project by zkor


I created a new simulation project called 'Aircraft windows':

Rectangular vs. oval window

More of my public projects can be found here.


This project is created to investigate the effect of having a rectangular or an oval hole in a stressed plate. Thus this project can provide a simple answer why most of the airplanes have oval windows.



I hadn’t thought about why airplane windows are oval - makes a lot of sense as rectangular windows have stress concentrations at the corners. Thanks for sharing :slight_smile:
