The author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new examples and exercises using Matlab. Additional worked examples make the text even more accessible by showing the application of concepts to airframe structures.


T.H.G. Megson is a professor emeritus with the Department of Civil Engineering at Leeds University (UK). For Elsevier he has written the market leading Butterworth Heinemann textbooks Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students and Introduction to Aircraft Structural Analysis (a briefer derivative of the aircraft structures book), as well as the text/ref hybrid Structural and Stress Analysis.

Based on the author's best-selling book Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, this brief text introduces the reader to the basics of structural analysis as applied to aircraft structures. Coverage of elasticity, energy methods and virtual work sets 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.


The book covers the core concepts in about 200 fewer pages by removing some optional topics like structural vibrations and aero elasticity. It consists of 23 chapters covering a variety of topics from basic elasticity to torsion of solid sections; energy methods; matrix methods; bending of thin plates; structural components of aircraft; airworthiness; airframe loads; bending of open, closed, and thin walled beams; combined open and closed section beams; wing spars and box beams; and fuselage frames and wing ribs.


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 fifth edition, the author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new examples and exercises using Matlab.


As with the first edition, this textbook provides a clear introduction to the fundamental theory of structural analysis as applied to vehicles, aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, and ships. The emphasis is on the application of fundamental concepts of structural analysis in everyday engineering practice.


From structural standpoint, the book is intended to be used as a tool to help achieve structural integrity according to government regulations, specifications, criteria, etc., for designing commercial or military transports, military fighters, as well as general aviation aircraft. It can be considered as a troubleshooting guide for airline structural maintenance and repair engineers or as a supplementary handbook in teaching aircraft structural design in college.

Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, Sixth Edition, is the leading self-contained aircraft structures course text. It covers all fundamental subjects, including elasticity, structural analysis, airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Now in its sixth edition, the author has expanded the book's coverage of analysis and design of composite materials for use in aircraft, and has added new, real-world and design-based examples, along with new end-of-chapter problems of varying complexity.


Imagine Princeton students designing a supersonic business jet. It happens in Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Luigi Martinelli *87’s class, where students act as a design team working for an aircraft manufacturer. The first step for the students is to come up with several designs that meet required specifications. Then the 26 students split into groups, each taking one of the conceptual designs and developing a detailed model of what the plane will look like and how it will be put together. In the end, the students produce a design that focuses on the aircraft’s aerodynamics and structural qualities. Along the way, students learn about the trade-offs aircraft designers face — between the aerodynamic performance of a wing versus its weight, for example — and create extensive design iterations to find the best compromise. Martinelli introduces the students to state-of-the-art design tools that he has developed, including computer programs to compute the aerodynamic forces on planes. “Teaching design is challenging,” says Martinelli, because “design is more an art than science. I aim at teaching the proper aeronautical design techniques while not suffocating creativity.” Louise Conroy ’03, a mechanical and aerospace engineering major, hopes to learn more about the process of designing a complex system by working in a hands-on group environment. “The best way to do something is in a team environment, and that seems to be the focus of this class,” she says.
