Abstract:

The report covers a study to identify optimum reliability problem identification and demonstration test concepts for helicopter dynamic components, in order to facilitate formulation of cost-effective reliability test programs for future helicopters. Detailed failure mode test technique problem identification capability and cost data are presented from CH-47 helicopter development experience to aid in calculating specific test costs for future development programs. Sample test plans are presented for two helicopters representing size extremes. A plan is outlined for revising selected existing design and test Military specifications andsupplementing them with additional handbooks and specifications.
