Abstract : With the ever-increasing trend towards the retention of aircraft in service much longer than originally planned, coupled with the facts that airframe structures are much more precisely optimised and advanced active control systems are common, it is essential that state-of-the-art fatigue monitoring procedures are used. Information from such systems is vitally important for efficient cost effective fleet management. Such data are also important to procurement authorities when trying to plan aircraft replacements. At its seventy-second meeting, the Structures and Materials Panel held a conference of specialists focussing on the problem of fatigue management. The meeting concluded with a well-attended discussion period. A summary of the issues and recommendations is provided at the end of the Proceedings.
