Dear Industry and Government User:

I hope that you have found TuPAS a valuable reference on the subject of aircraft structures. As you know the field of aircraft structures is far more comprehensive than the coverage contained in TuPAS. However, I am striving to improve the existing contents and include more topics as time allows. To fulfill this goal I would like to request your assistance. As an engineer in industry or government, you may have more knowledge and experience on topics related to aircraft structures. As such, I would like to ask you to consider using TuPAS as a platform for sharing that experience with others, especially engineering students who hope to pursue careers in the structures area.

Although may be limited in scope, your contribution could be in the form of a realistic problem and associated solution, method of analysis, analytical predictions versus experimental results, rules of thumb, photographs of real structures and test articles, methods of testing, experimental data, etc. If you are intrested in writing a chapter to be added to TuPAS, that would be wonderful.

Whatever your contributions, they will be acknowledged in a manner that is agreeable to you.

With sincere gratitude,

Masoud Rais-Rohani
