Mechanics of Aircraft Structures, Second Edition is the revised update of the original bestselling textbook about aerospace engineering. This book covers the materials and analysis tools used for aircraft structural design and mechanics in the same easy to understand manner. The new edition focuses on three levels of coverage driven by recent advances in industry: the increase in the use of commercial finite element codes require an improved capability in students to formulate the problem and develop a judgement of the accuracy of the numerical results; the focus on fracture mechanics as a tool in studying damage tolerance and durability has made it necessary to introduce students at the undergraduate level to this subject; a new class of materials including advanced composites, are very different from the traditional metallic materials, requiring students and practitioners to understand the advantages the new materials make possible. This new edition will provide more homework problems for each chapter, more examples, and more details in some of the derivations.

Mechanics of Aero-structures is a concise textbook for students of aircraft structures, which covers aircraft loads and maneuvers, torsion and bending of single cell, multi-cell and open thin-walled structures. Static structural stability, energy methods, and aero-elastic instability are discussed. Numerous examples and exercises are included to enhance the students' facility with structural analysis. This textbook is meant for third- and fourth-year undergraduate students in the aerospace and aeronautical engineering programs, and the material included can be covered in a one semester course. A sufficient number of figures are included for the clarity of the subject matter. The book begins with a description of aerodynamic loads to motivate students, and includes an in-depth description of energy methods - an essential topic.

As with the first edition, this textbook provides a clear introduction to the fundamental theory of structural analysis as applied to vehicular structures such as aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles and ships. The emphasis is on the application of fundamental concepts of structural analysis that are employed in everyday engineering practice. All approximations are accompanied by a full explanation of their validity. In this new edition, more topics, figures, examples and exercises have been added. There is also a greater emphasis on the finite element method of analysis. Clarity remains the hallmark of this text and it employs three strategies to achieve clarity of presentation: essential introductory topics are covered, all approximations are fully explained and many important concepts are repeated.

Aircraft Structures concisely and comprehensively presents the basics of aircraft design and analysis and is intended for students in aerospace and mechanical engineering. In three sections and focusing particularly on the function of aircraft parts, this volume treats the fundamentals of aircraft design, excluding the engine and the avionics. The first part deals with the basics of structural analysis, including mechanics or rigid bodies, energy principles, analysis of trusses, and analysis of continuum structures. In the second part, basic aerodynamics, loads, beams, shafts, buckling of columns, bending and buckling of thin plates and shear flow, shear center and shear lag, aeroplane fuselage and wing and fatigue are explained. The third section covers additional topics, such as finite element analysis, aircraft construction materials and aeroelasticity. With an emphasis on lightweight design, this volume further presents some special topics, such as box beams in wings, ring frames in fuselage, and longitudinal stiffeners. With many examples and solved problems, this textbook on aircraft structures is an essential source of information for both students and engineering professionals who want to introduce themselves to the topic.
