Introduction to Aircraft Structure Analysis, Third Editioncovers the basics of structural analysis as applied to aircraft structures. Coverage of elasticity, energy methods and virtual work set the stage for discussions of airworthiness/airframe loads and stress analysis of aircraft components. Numerous worked examples, illustrations and sample problems show how to apply the concepts to realistic situations. As a self-contained guide, this value-priced book is an excellent resource for anyone learning the subject.

  • Based on the author's best-selling text,Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students
  • Contains expanded coverage of composite materials and structures
  • Includes new practical and design-based examples and problems throughout the text
  • Provides an online teaching and learning tool with downloadable MATLAB code, a solutions manual, and an image bank of figures from the book
