DescriptionThis book provides an introduction to the discipline of aerospace structures and materials. It is the first book to date that includes all relevant aspects of this discipline within a single monologue. These aspects range from materials/ manufacturing and processing techniques/ to structures/ design principles and structural performance/ including aspects like durability and safety. With the purpose of introducing students into the basics of the entire discipline/ the book presents the subjects broadly and loosely connected/ adopting either a formal description or an informal walk around type of presentation. A key lessons conveyed within this book is the interplay between the exact science and engineering topics/ like solid material physics and structural analysis/ and the soft topics that are not easily captured by equations and formulas. Safety/ manufacturability/ availability and costing are some of these topics that are presented in this book to explain decisions and design solutions within this discipline.
