By T.H.G. Megson

Aircraft buildings for Engineering Students is the prime self contained plane buildings path textual content. It covers all primary matters, together with elasticity, structural research, airworthiness and aeroelasticity. Now in its fourth version, the writer has revised and up to date the textual content all through and further new case learn and labored instance fabric to make the textual content much more obtainable. encompasses a options guide on hand to all adopting lecturers.

* New association aids knowing of the basics of structural research and emphasizes purposes to aircraft
* New labored examples in the course of the textual content relief realizing and relate suggestions to genuine international applications
* extra assurance comprises digital paintings, rigidity box beams, put up buckling habit, fabric homes, composite constructions and crack propagation
* an intensive plane layout venture case learn indicates the appliance of the most important ideas within the book
* finish of bankruptcy workouts and accompanying Instructor's handbook at

Example text

Similarly it may be shown that Q N = τxy cos 2θ − σx − σy sin 2θ = −τ 2 as in Eq. 9). Note that the construction of Fig. 12(b) corresponds to the stress system of Fig. 12(a) so that any sign reversal must be allowed for. Also, the Oσ and Oτ axes must be constructed to the same scale or the equation of the circle is not represented. The maximum and minimum values of the direct stress, viz. the major and minor principal stresses σI and σII , occur when N (and Q ) coincide with B and A, respectively.

The direct stresses on these planes are called principal stresses and the planes themselves, principal planes. From Eq. 10) sin 2θ = 2τxy 2 (σx − σy )2 + 4τxy cos 2θ = σx − σy 2 (σx − σy )2 + 4τxy and sin 2(θ + π/2) = −2τxy 2 (σx − σy )2 + 4τxy cos 2(θ + π/2) = −(σx − σy ) 2 (σx − σy )2 + 4τxy Rewriting Eq. 12) and where σI is the maximum or major principal stress and σII is the minimum or minor principal stress. Note that σI is algebraically the greatest direct stress at the point while σII is algebraically the least.

However, since they are rigidly attached at their ends one restrains the other and an axial stress is induced in each. Suppose that this stress is σx . 16 Experimental measurement of surface strains The total strain in the copper and steel is the same since their ends are rigidly attached to each other. e. Ac σc As (iv) Substituting for σs in Eq. (iii) gives σc Ac 1 + Ec As Es σc = from which = T (αs − αc ) T (αs − αc )As Es Ec As Es + Ac Ec (v) Also αc > σs so that σc is negative and therefore compressive.
