INTRODUCTION TO STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS AND AEROELASTICITY, SECOND EDITION This text provides an introduction to structural dynamics and aeroelasticity, with an em- phasis on conventional aircraft. The primary areas considered are structural dynamics, static aeroelasticity, and dynamic aeroelasticity. The structural dynamics material em- phasizes vibration, the modal representation, and dynamic response. Aeroelastic phe- nomena discussed include divergence, aileron reversal, airload redistribution, unsteady aerodynamics, flutter, and elastic tailoring. More than one hundred illustrations and ta- bles help clarify the text, and more than fifty problems enhance student learning. This text meets the need for an up-to-date treatment of structural dynamics and aeroelasticity for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate aerospace engineering students. Praise from the First Edition “Wonderfully written and full of vital information by two unequalled experts on the subject, this text meets the need for an up-to-date treatment of structural dynamics and aeroelasticity for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate aerospace engineering students.” – Current Engineering Practice “Hodges and Pierce have written this significant publication to fill an important gap in aeronautical engineering education. Highly recommended.” – Choice “. . . a welcome addition to the textbooks available to those with interest in aeroelas- ticity. . . . As a textbook, it serves as an excellent resource for advanced undergraduate and entry-level graduate courses in aeroelasticity. . . . Furthermore, practicing engineers interested in a background in aeroelasticity will find the text to be a friendly primer.” – AIAA Bulletin Dewey H. Hodges is a Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is the author of more than 170 refereed journal papers and three books, Nonlinear Composite Beam Theory (2006), Fundamentals of Struc- tural Stability (2005, with G. J. Simitses), and Introduction to Structural Dynamics and Aeroelasticity, First Edition (2002, with G. Alvin Pierce). His research spans the fields of aeroelasticity, dynamics, computational structural mechanics and structural dynamics, perturbation methods, computational optimal control, and numerical analysis. The late G. Alvin Pierce was Professor Emeritus in the School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is the coauthor of Introduction to Structural Dynamics and Aeroelasticity, First Edition with Dewey H. Hodges (2002). Cambridge Aerospace Series Editors: Wei Shyy and Michael J. Rycroft 1. J. M.
