Practical Analysis of Aircraft Composites covers a variety of topics including basic mechanics, analysis, design, requirements and substantiation, and processing. The book is suitable for both professional use and academic study. The book was released in late 2017. Excerpts from some of the reviews:

“Should be on the shelf of every stress analyst...”

“The discussion on various failure criteria is superior...”

“Although it is geared towards aircraft composites, there is no reason that it wouldn't apply to any other advanced composites analysis applications.”

“Fills an important niche that has lacked adequate coverage...”

“An outstanding reference book...”

“An excellent book for the practicing engineer...”

“Like Bruhn for composites”


We provide software for a variety of detail analysis procedures. The modules are primary for composites, but some are also effective for metals. All software is free for individuals. All software updated in 2018 to be consistent with the book.
