Description

Based on the author's best-selling text, Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, this brief book covers the basics of structural analysis as applied to aircraft structures Coverage of elasticity, energy methods and virtual work set the stage for discussions of airworthiness/airframe loads and stress analysis of aircraft components Numerous worked examples, illustrations, and sample problems show how to apply the concepts to realistic situations. Self-contained, this value-priced book is an excellent resource for anyone learning the subject.

Key Features

  • Based on the author's best-selling text Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, this introduction covers core concepts in about 200 fewer pages than the original by removing some optional topics like structural vibrations and aeroelasticity
  • Systematic step-by-step procedures in the worked examples
  • Self-contained, with complete derivations for key equations

Readership

Undergraduate and postgraduate students of aerospace and aeronautical engineering. Also suitable for professional development and training courses
