Written specifically for students of aeronautical engineering covers not only the fundamentals of elasticity, but also the associated topics of airworthiness and aeroelasticity. A self-contained course in aircraft structures, coverage corresponds to and complements the general course work from the beginning of the second year of study through the advanced topics of the final year. The first section covers includes sufficient elasticity theory to provide the basic tools of structural analysis, indicating the role and limitations of each analytical method. The second section covers the analysis of the thin-walled, cellular type of structure peculiar to aircraft and features discussion of structural materials, the fabrication and function of structural components, and an introduction to structural idealization. This section also investigates modifications necessary to account for axial constraint effects and presents computational methods of structural analysis. Final chapters cover airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Numerous worked and unworked problems with answers are included.
