Abstract:

Contains the papers presented at a Specialists Meeting on Exploitation of Structural LoadsHealth Data for Reduced Life Cycle Costs, organised by the Applied Vehicle Technology Panel AVT of RTO, in Brussels, Belgium, 11-12 May 1998. The papers highlight the potential benefits from the exploitation of the information derived from modern and future monitoring systems in terms of improved airworthiness and preventative maintenance. The meeting concentrated on the collection, analysis and use of loadshealth data by the military for fleet maintenance and logistics planning. Systems and techniques for data gathering and automated analysis were described by authors from a number of NATO nations to provide a valuable insight into how such systems contribute to reducing life cycle costs of military hardware. The papers are presented under the following headings Current and future structural monitoring Enginehelicopter hums Current militarycivil experience Monitoring systems and analysis.
