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.

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:
