Becoming an aircraft stress engineer.
The ultimate aircraft stress analysis guide containing the best kept secrets, tips and words of wisdom from the Aerospace Structure Analysis world.
With many complete calculation examples covering many types of aircraft structures, Becoming an aircraft stress engineer is a great companion to the aerospace engineer who wants to acquire real stress analysis hands-on experience rapidly. Filled with some advice and personnal comments, the book guides the reader similar in a way to a mentor-ship by demonstrating how to perform analyses on aircraft structures starting from drawings and resulting in aircraft certification stress reports.
The following are excerpts from the preliminary version of the book.

Shear - Tension interaction Hi-Lite fasteners Most fasteners are mainly loaded in shear. That should be the only way for rivets as their tension capability is somewhat low. That is especially true for blind rivets. Therefore, whenever there is a substantial tension...
Even to this date, most aircraft (metallic and composite) are assembled using some type of fasteners. Those fasteners could be solid rivets, blind rivets, screws or bolts.
In fastener analysis, there are two things that you have to check for:
