1. Aircraft structures are designed to use every part to its full capability. Leads to shell-like (monocoque) & stiffened shell (semi-monocoque) structures.
2. Major aircraft components (wings, fuselage, tails) are comprised of basic s

Structural safety with minimum weight is the major criterion for the design of aircraft structures, which comprise thin load bearing skins, frames, stiffeners, s
Introduction to Elasticity
Elasticity - Study of strain - displacement relations, equilibrium equations, and constitutive equations for elastic (not rigid, not plastic) structures. Displacement is the change of position during deformation. p(x , y , z) p(
