Abstract:

The Workshop provided a forum for an in-depth discussion of the correlation between in-service experience and results from analytical predictive models, specimen level tests, component tests and full-scale tests. Additionally, the Workshop made possible an examination of the operating standards that different countries adopt with respect to various elements in the design process such as load spectrum, exceedance diagram algorithm for calculating fatigue damage, and in-service monitoring protocol-all contributing to refinement of the requirements of an aircraft monitoring system.
