Based on the author's best-selling text Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, this brief book covers the basics of structural analysis as applied to aircraft structures. Coverage of elasticity, energy methods and virtual work set the stage for discussions of airworthiness/airframe loads and stress analysis of aircraft components. Numerous worked examples, illustrations, and sample problems show how to apply the concepts to realistic situations. Self-contained, this value-priced book is an excellent resource for anyone learning the subject. • Covers the core concepts in about 200 fewer pages by removing some optional topics like structural vibrations and aero elasticity • Systematic step by step procedures in the worked examples • Self-contained, with complete derivations for key equations
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 aero-elasticity. Now in its fifth edition, the author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new examples and exercises using Matlab TM. Additional examples make the text even more accessible by showing application of concepts to airframe structures. Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students includes a Solutions Manual available to all adopting teachers and an extensive aircraft design project case study, which shows the application of the major techniques in the book.
Airworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification, Second Edition, offers a practical guide to the regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The discussions include the concepts of flight safety and airworthiness; the ICAO and civil aviation authorities; airworthiness requirements; type certifications and the type-certification process; production of products, parts, and appliances; certifications of airworthiness; and rules for aerospace worthiness. The book will be a valuable resource for certification engineers engaged in professional training and practical work in regulatory agencies and aircraft engineering companies.
A one-stop desk reference, for engineers involved in all aspects of aerospace, this book will not gather dust on the shelf. It brings together the essential professional reference content from leading international contributors in the field. Material covers a broad topic range from structural components of aircraft, design and airworthiness to aerodynamics and modeling.
Airworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification, A Guide to Understanding JAA, EASA and FAA Standards
Understanding airworthiness is central to maintaining and operating aircraft safely. While no book can replace the published FAR/JAR documentation for airworthiness, this unique guide provides readers with a single reference to understanding and interpreting the airworthiness requirements of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), FAA (the US Federal Aviation Authority) and EASA (European Aircraft Safety Agency). Setting these requirements in a real-world context, the book is an essential contribution to the safety management system of anyone involved in the design, maintenance and operation of aircraft for business or pleasure.
