Moving on from the conceptual design of an aircraft, it becomes necessary to lay down the details of the airframe. This is effectively done in two stages--derivation of the applied loading and layout/sizing of the primary structural members. In his latest contribution to the literature Aircraft Loading and Structural Layout Denis Howe provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of loading actions analysis, together with the logical extension to the conceptual design of the airframe. He thereby meets two perceived needs that are not currently addressed by existing aircraft design texts, where loading analysis tends to be dealt with somewhat superficially, treating only the basic symmetric flight envelope, and where structural analysis often assumes that a certain level of design detail has already been established. The author's comprehensive lecture notes, accumulated during 45 years of teaching aircraft design at Cranfield University provided the basis for this valuable reference text that offers a straightforward, systematic approach to the quantitative derivation of the initial structural concept. Readers will find a simple, logical, sequence to derive the form, location and a
