Abstract:

The random stress processes, composite Gaussian or single Gaussian, are constructed on the basis of exceedance curves for different aircraft under various flight conditions. The fatigue crack propagations under such stress processes are estimated with the aid of fracture mechanics method. Numerical examples are worked out to illustrate the numerical significance of various analytical models and to indicate the sensitivity of the probability of failure to the parameters involved in the models. This volume contains computer program lists, input and output descriptions, input and output samples, flow charts and other data necessary for numerical work associated with the tasks described in volume 1.
