"Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students" is the leading self contained aircraft structures course text. It 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. Includes a Solutions Manual available to all adopting teachers. * New organization aids understanding of the fundamentals of structural analysis and emphasizes applications to aircraft structures * New worked examples throughout the text aid understanding and relate concepts to real world applications * Additional coverage includes virtual work, tension field beams, post buckling behavior, material properties, composite structures and crack propagation * An extensive aircraft design project case study shows the application of the major techniques in the book * End of chapter exercises and accompanying Instructor's Manual at http: //
