Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students

Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, Sixth Edition, is the leading self-contained aircraft structures course text. It covers all fundamental subjects, including elasticity, structural analysis, airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Now in its sixth edition, the author has expanded the book's coverage of analysis and design of composite materials for use in aircraft, and has added new, real-world and design-based examples, along with new end-of-chapter problems of varying complexity.
