Book Description

The sixth edition of Aviation Structures for Engineering Students is widely regarded as the best self-contained textbook available for aircraft structures classes. All of the essential topics, such as structural analysis, elasticity, airworthiness, and aeroelasticity, are covered in depth. The author of this PDF ebook, which is now in its sixth edition, has expanded the coverage of analysis and design of composite materials for use in aircraft. In addition, the author has added new examples that are based on both the real world and design, as well as new end-of-chapter problems of varying degrees of difficulty.

  • Throughout the book, there are brand new challenges and examples that are design-based and practical to aid with comprehension and connect theoretical principles to real-world scenarios.
  • A more comprehensive examination of composite materials and structures
  • Teaching and learning aids, such as downloadable Matlab code and a solutions manual, as well as an image library of figures taken from the book, are all available online.
  • The use of computational tools in analysis and design is supported by examples and exercises in Matlab that have been updated and expanded.
