This volume is devoted to problems of structural mechanics and mathematical design methods for modern statically determinate and statically indeterminate airframe structures consisting of rods, thin walls and shells. Variational and finite-difference methods are examined as they apply to calculations for structures of this type. Engineering methods are presented for the design of solid wings and fuselages for aircraft with large cutouts. A special section is devoted to calculation techniques for structures operating under conditions of high temperature as a result of kinetic heating. A table of conversions between the units of the MKGSS meter, kilogram-force, second and SI International systems for the references is given at the end of the book. Author
