Abstract:

The major objective of this Meeting was to take a further step towards the collection of experience on the fatigue evaluation and substantiation of new helicopters. The Meeting included surveys of current procedures and service experience, consideration of new concepts associated with the introduction of new technologies such as composite materials, new philosophies relevant to service damage and combat damage, and a review of testing techniques and methodologies for airframes and dynamic components. Finally, presentations were made on a European exercise aimed at the development of standardized fatigue load histories for helicopter rotors.
