    Does anyone know what topics each of these old government publications covers?
    18 at least, should deal with wood airplane design standards. I was wondering what is covered, more specifically?
    I'm trying to gauge how useful each of them would be in aircraft structural design and which ones would be the most informative.

    Design of Wood Aircraft Structures - ANC 18


    Produced for both civil and military use by the US Dept of Defense, this manual is divided into three sections, designed as a whole to give an overview of wood aircraft construction. The first section presents the definitions of standard structural symbols used within the manual, and defines the difference between the strength and elastic properties of plywood elements and plywood panels. The next section looks at the strength and elatic properties of structural elements constructed of wood and plywood. The third section contains methods of structural analysis for the design of various aircraft components, especially taking into account the orthotropic properties of wood. The final section gives recommendations on the structural design of wood aircraft, with examples of how various manufacturers have treated the solution of specific detail design problems. The 234 pages are full of technical data, tables, graphs, charts, diagrams etc.

    Wood Aircraft Inspection and Fabrication - ANC 19


    Produced for both civil and military use by the US Dept of Defense, this manual is specifically designed for fabricators and inspectors of wood aircraft. It comprises more than 300 pages on wood, modified wood, glues, processing etc, providing a wealth of information on wood as aircraft material; identification and characteristics; defects & blemishes; plywoods, laminates, resins, compressed woods, combinations, acetylated wood etc; properties, characteristics and control of glues:seasoning & storage; humidity control; assembly; maching & bending; finishing; props; plus lists of specifications etc. Illustrated with pictures, diagrams, charts etc throughout.
