This is the first book devoted to the materials, processes, fabrication techniques, and manufacturing processes unique to the aerospace industry. Written by a senior engineer at Boeing, this book will cover all the major steps in creating aircraft and aerospace vehicle components---from the metals, composites and plastics typically used, to fabrication, machining, joining and assembly techniques, to component integration. It will be invaluable as both a personal reference for engineers and as an instructional guide for training courses in the aerospace industry and college programs. The book will offer ample references for further research and exercises that can be used in training programs. Highlights are * Coverage of all fundamentals of aerospace vehicles and aircraft building, including major components, materials and fabrication sequences * Helpful guidance on metal fabrication techniques common to aircraft, including hot and cold metal plate forming, extrusion forming, tube forming, metal cutting, machining, welding, and fastening * Unique coverage of integration of aircraft components, and areas for further research and development , along with end- of-book exercises

"This is a MUST have material, and as a certificated Aerospace Manufacturing individual with highest third degree in Engineering/Technology Management, focus on Technology Transfer in Aerospace Industry for sustainable development, I can say without reservation that it’s a book to enrich this innovative generation."
― Kayode P. Odimayomi, National Space Research & Development Agency (NASRDA), Nigeria
"I enjoyed reviewing the material Dr. Saha has provided in this book. He has assembled a lot of very complex information and distilled it to a level that can be understood and enjoyed by someone who is not an expert in this field already. He has covered a very broad range of information in a very factual and logical manner."
