Abstract:

The proposed reliability-based static strength criteria system described in AFFDL-TR-67-107, Volumes 1-3, was reviewed to determine the data requirements and available, the implications of such an approach on the structural design process, methods by which implementation can be achieved without discontinuity, and necessary changes to specification and handbooks. Volume 2 describes the findings and includes five appendices. The principal conclusions are that insufficient data exists for the imminent implementation, but that studies of the relative reliability of different configurations and components or of different conditions at the same location would provide a short term means of using the system to gain familiarity and confidence.
