Abstract:

The publication has essentially been oriented to present practical applications of fracture mechanics to all aspects of aircraft design, manufacture and testing. Although theoretical discussions are included to provide an appreciation of the complexity of the problems involved, the emphasis is on practical examples. Applications to engine components built-up structures joints, lugs and fasteners integral structures and forgings are covered. The effects of stress corrosion and problems of scatter affecting determination of stress concentration factors, fatigue crack propagation and residual strength are discussed.
