This book covers all fundamental subjects, including elasticity, structural analysis, airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Now in its fourth edition, the author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new case study and worked example material to make the text even more accessible.
The authors comprehensively detail the concept design phase for both military and civil aircraft in a way that addresses user needs, materials, and structure. They discuss designing for survivability (stealth), solar and human-powered aircraft systems, and high altitude flight with air-breathing propulsion.
This book addresses anti-fatigue manufacturing, analysis and test verification technologies for typical aircraft structures, including fastening holes, shot peening plates, different types of joints and wing boxes.
The equations of linear elasticity and basic constitutive behaviour of isotropic and composite materials are reviewed. The text focuses on the analysis of practical structural components including bars, beams, and plates.
This book deals with structural failure (induced by mechanical, aerodynamic, acoustic and aero-thermal, loads, etc.) of modern aerospace vehicles, in particular high-speed aircraft, solid propellant rocket systems and hypersonic flight vehicles.

Focusing on the A380 wing—at 17.7 meters from front to back and 36.3 meters from fuselage to wingtip, it is the largest ever produced for a civil airliner—this program explores the frontiers of aircraft design and manufacturing.
