Composite Airframe Structures

This book is intended to advance the technical understanding and practical knowledge of advanced composites, emphasizing the design and manufacture of airframe structures. All aspects at composite design will be discussed in a thorough and rigorous fashion which includes guidelines, observations, design factors, pros and cons of design cases, and troubleshooting techniques. Another purpose of this book is to give composite designers and engineers a practical design tool, containing broad data and information gained from past experience and lessons learned in design and fabrication of composite components, that can be used to design low cost and weight efficient composite structures with high structural integrity.
It must be remembered that composite airframe structural design encompassed almost all the engineering disciplines, and engineers who need hands-on information and data that are technically sound and emphasize rational design and technical analysis, and this book was written with that need in mind.
