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. Expanded coverage of composite materials and structures New practical and design-based examples and problems throughout the text aid understanding and relate concepts to real world applications Updated and additional Matlab examples and exercises support use of computational tools in analysis and design Available online teaching and learning tools include downloadable Matlab code, solutions manual, and image bank of figures from the book
