Adams, D. R. | Practical Aircraft Stress Analysis
First edition, first impression of this uncommon book, written “with the object of providing a simple and practical study of the methods used in the stress analysis of aircraft components”. The text is based on lectures delivered by the author at the de Havilland Aeronautical Technical School, and “advanced knowledge of statics, mechanics and aerodynamics is not required” (preface).
London: Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, Ltd., 1936.
