This legendary, still-relevant reference text on aircraft stress analysis discusses basic structural theory and the application of the elementary principles of mechanics to the analysis of aircraft structures. 1950 edition.
The new edition of this popular textbook provides a modern, accessible introduction to the whole process of aircraft design from requirements to conceptual design, manufacture and in-service issues. Highly illustrated descriptions of the full spectrum of aircraft types, their aerodynamics, structures and systems, allow students to appreciate good and poor design and understand how to improve their own designs. Cost data is considerably updated, many new images have been added and new sections are included on the emerging fields of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles and environmentally-friendly airlines. Examples from real aircraft projects are presented throughout, demonstrating to students the applications of the theory. Three appendices and a bibliography provide a wealth of information, much not published elsewhere, including simple aerodynamic formulae, an introduction to airworthiness and environmental requirements, aircraft, engine and equipment data, and a case study of the conceptual design of a large airliner.
Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this outstanding text was written by one of the founders of bioengineering and modern biomechanics. It offers unusually thorough coverage of the interaction of aerodynamic forces and elastic structures. It has also proven highly useful to designers and engineers concerned with flutter, structural dynamics, flight loads, and related subjects.An introductory chapter covers concepts of aerodynamics, elasticity, and mechanical vibrations. Chapters 2 through 11 survey aeroelastic problems, their historical background, basic physical concepts, and the principles of analysis. Chapters 12 through 15 contain the fundamentals of oscillating airfoil theory and a brief summary of experimental results. Each chapter is followed by a bibliography, and 147 illustrations and 20 tables illuminate the text.
Highly regarded text deals with aeroelasticity as well as underlying aerodynamic and structural tools. Topics include incompressible flow, flutter, model theory, and much more. Over 300 illustrations. 1955 edition.
Excellent graduate-level text explores virtually every important subject in the fields of subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic aerodynamics and dynamics, demonstrating their interface in atmospheric flight vehicle design. 1974 edition.
Mises' classic avoids the formidable mathematical structure of fluid dynamics, while conveying — by often unorthodox methods — a full understanding of the physical phenomena and mathematical concepts of aeronautical engineering.
An excellent introduction to the study of inviscid airflow using potential theory, this book is a longtime university text and reference and a classic in its field. This edition is a complete reprint of the revised 1966 edition, which brings the subject up to date. Includes a wealth of problems, illustrations, and cross-references.
