Books and eBooks

Advanced Materials in Automotive Engineering (2012)

Drawing on the knowledge of leading experts, Advanced materials in automotive engineering explores the development, potential and impact of using such materials.

Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students (2007)

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.

Damage Tolerance of Metallic Aircraft Structures (2018)

This book provides a state-of-the-art review of the fail-safe and damage tolerance approaches, allowing weight savings and increasing aircraft reliability and structural integrity.

Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design v.1 (2010)

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.

Long-Life Design and Test Technology of Typical Aircraft Structures (2018)

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.

Structural Analysis (2009)

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.

Structural Failure Analysis and Prediction Methods for Aerospace Vehicles and Structures (2012)

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.
