Including an Analysis approach road map!

By Stephan Couture

Becoming an Aircraft Stress Engineer.

The ultimate aircraft stress engineer 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 personal 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. 

With many complete calculation examples covering some primary and secondary 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 technical as well as life-at-work advice and comments, the book guides the reader in a similar way to a mentor-ship by demonstrating how to performs analyses on aircraft structures starting from drawings (3D models) and resulting in Aircraft Stress reports.

Although filled with somewhat real life structural analyses, this book is not intended to be a design manual on its own but a companion to other existing very good analysis tools references. Its purpose is to show the reader a map of the analysis approach to be followed depending on the type of structure. Whether the structure is metallic or composite, this book shows the approach that the author used over the years that will help the reader become a proficient Aircraft Stress Engineer.

    I wish I had this book when I started my career in Aerospace Stress Engineering.

    Teaching and learning structural analysis is not easy. I found the book very instructive. It offers a detailed, yet easy to follow, coverage of various stress analysis topics. An excellent guide for students and professionals. The worked examples and references provided throughout assist greatly the learning process. Highly recommended.

    Structural analysis is not an easy topic, and you need to be really into it to understand all kind of analysis required. I have found the book pretty instructive for sure. It is really helpful, it explains how to analyze some details and what to be aware of, something that you will learn through time and nobody is going to teach you. I am really enjoying it. Highly recommended.

    I’m only a fraction of the way through the book and already it’s opened my eyes to a lot of concepts. Thoroughly recommended!
