The HSB (Handbuch Struktur Berechnung) is a comprehensive reference to procedures, methods, data and tools for the demonstration of sufficient structural integrity of aerospace structures. The manual addresses many topics, covering both traditional and innovative approaches to analysis and design, about static analysis, stability, strength, fatigue & damage tolerance, joints, vibrations and aerospace materials. HSB contains numerous tables, charts, illustrations, and virtually every equation an aerospace design and stress engineer needs. The contents of the manual are updated constinuously.
The HSB is published by the members of the LTH IASB working group (industry committee for structural analysis documents). The members are coming from the industry (e.g. Airbus, Premium Aerotec, RUAG, Pilatus, TAI, Airbus Defence and Space, Fokker, Marenco, etc.), engineering firms, universities, research institutes and aerospace authorities.
Fatec Engineering is a member of the IASB since 2007 and delivers the responsible expert for Joints. Furthermore, Fatec Engineering is involved in many Fatigue & Damage Tolerance topics.
