Abstract:

The software for an aircraft fatigue monitoring data acquisition system was designed and implemented on a prototype instrument to evaluate the feasibility of employing such a system in the data collection process for the determination of fatigue effects in aircraft structures. The operating software and the associated hardware are described herein options for actual implementation in light of rapid technological developments are hypothesized and discussed. Separate software packages provide for the data collection and retrieval, including the pre-processing of data to a form which is suitable for computation. Results of test cases are presented where the software is proved by comparison of output to controlled input signals.
