Abstract:

The development testing of the C-5A full-scale fatigue specimens presented a timely opportunity to continue the development of a system of fatigue sensing devices. The fatigue sensor selected for use was previously evaluated during an Air Force funded feasibility study and has been adapted to meet the application requirements on full-scale C-5A structure. The report constitutes the final report regarding this effort and applies specifically to an evaluation of the sensor on the C-5A laboratory fatigue test specimens. The techniques of sensor installation, location, data acquisition methods, and analysis of sensor response are herein evaluated in view of potential utilization on fleet aircraft.
