It is a regrettable fact that so few text books on aircraft structures exist which can be recommended to students. We in this country have at least the sad excuse that the teaching of aircraft structural theory formed, until a few years ago, a negligible or non‐existent part of the curriculum of University students in Aeronautics. Interestingly enough, this has never been the policy on the Continent and in the U.S.A. In fact, a number of interesting textbooks on aircraft structures have been published in the U.S.A., but it is probably fair to state that none has achieved the recognition awarded to some books on aerodynamics.
