Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students (Elsevier Aerospace Engineering) by T H G Megson is a book that is useful for any student or an engineer who is into aircraft structural analysis. It contains a self - contained aircraft structures course text. The book covers all the fundamental subjects for engineering students such as structural analysis, elasticity, aero elasticity and airworthiness.This book is in its fifth edition and the author has revised and updated the content throughout. New examples have been added with exercises using Matlab. The text is now much more accessible with additional worked - out examples that demonstrate the applications of theoretical concepts. The title now has a solutions manual which is available for the teachers. The book offers an elaborate introduction to the problems that are faced in the structural design of a modern aircraft. The content of the book is divided into two parts. Part A of the book consists of Fundamentals of Structural Analysis and Part B consists of Analysis of Aircraft structures. Each part is further divided into several sub topics.There is an extensive project case study related to an aircraft design and it demonstrates the application of the important techniques that have been covered in the book. The number of end - of - the - chapter exercises have been increased and are accompanied by a solutions manual. The new examples which have been used thoroughly in the textbook help in understanding the various concepts and also in applying them in the real world. The Matlab exercises and examples have been included throughout the book for supporting the use of computational tools in design and analysis.Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students (Elsevier Aerospace Engineering) was published by Butterworth - Heinemann Limited in the year 2012. This 5th revised edition is available in paperback format. This book is useful for undergraduate as well as postgraduate students of aerospace and aeronautical engineering.
