Abstract:

Weapons to defend against aircraft are more powerful and accurate than ever. Aircraft systems and structures have become more complicated since World War II. With all these technological improvements, a war could be won or lost within the first few hours or days of battle. Therefore it is necessary that as many aircraft as possible be available for each mission. But, with new materials and manufacturing methods, the battle damage assessor is ill equipped to do his job, that of assessment and repair. Repairs which restore full strength and life to a structure are inappropriate. This paper presents a battle damage assessor expert system. The system is designed to provide the expertise of a structural engineering consultant to the damage assessor technician. Author
