Abstract:

The report describes efforts by LMI to determine feasible methods of attaining the following dual interrelated objectives to improved long-range predictions of the safe remaining structural life of groups of Naval aircraft e.g., all Navy F-4Bs to be used statistically to facilitate and support decisions regarding major structural modification programs, programmed aircraft model service life and service life extensions, and planning of the future military role to be filled by given aircraft models, and to improved short-range predictions of the structural condition of individual Naval aircraft, which can be used to develop a maintenance strategy e.g., inspection intervals which would increase the probability of aircraft meeting operational commitments without major structural problems.
