General Aviation Aircraft Load Analysisprovides new detail to benefit those studying and working in general aviation aircraft structural design. Load analysis is an indispensable preliminary element of aircraft structural design, defining aerodynamic, inertial and operational loads to which the airframe must be equipped to react. Snorri Gudmundsson (author ofGeneral Aviation Aircraft Design) provides a clear and practical study of load analysis for general aviation aircraft-the first book to do so. The book explains basic concepts like aerodynamic and inertial loads, as well as new practical methods for calculation including numerical and experimental analyses.

  • Focuses exclusively on load for GA aircraft
  • Balances basic concepts of load estimation and practical methods of load calculation
  • Addresses load estimation using both numerical and experimental methods
  • Provides a clear and practical study of load analysis for general aviation aircraft the first book to do so
