Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students is the leading self contained aircraft structures course text. It covers all fundamental subjects, including elasticity, structural analysis, airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Now in its fifth edition, the author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new examples and exercises using Matlab c . Additional worked examples make the text even more accessible by showing application of concepts to airframe structures. Includes a Solutions Manual available to all adopting teachers. New worked examples throughout the text aid understanding and relate concepts to real world applications Matlab examples and exercises added throughout to support use of computational tools in analysis and design An extensive aircraft design project case study shows the application of the major techniques in the book More end of chapter exercises, with an accompanying Solutions Manual for instructors only at http://textbooks.elsevier.com

Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent book and should find a place on the shelf of any student or practising engineer involved in aircraft structural analysis. I can recommend it to the aeronautical community without reservation" --The Aeronautical Journal, October 2001 "As an introduction to the problems encountered in the structural design of modern aircraft, Megson's book can be recommended to both students and those engaged in structural analysis aerospace design offices."--Aerospace
