Abstract:

Contents Aspects of aeronautical fatigue Methods of stress- measurement analysis for fatigue life evaluation The use of counting accelerometer data in fatigue life predictions for aircraft flying in complex roles The use of fracture mechanics principles in the design and analysis of damage tolerant aircraft structures Corrosion fatigue - or - how to replace the full-scale fatigue test On fatigue analysis and testing for the design of the airframe A rational analytic theory of fatigue - revisited A summary of crack growth prediction techniques The R.Ae.S. - ESDU cumulative damage hypothesis Fatigue life prediction - a somewhat optimistic view of the problem.
