Abstract:

This report summarizes the work performed by the Boeing Company to develop an aging aircraft structures database to be used to aid in the verification of structural integrity analysis of aircraft structures. Sample data were collected for the C-30 EC-135, C-141, and F-15 aircraft in the areas of fatigue, corrosion, and structural repair. A user-friendly database was developed using Microsoft Visual Basic , which can be accessed by other windows based structural analysis software. The report also summarizes work performed to link the database to the existing Air Force crack growth life prediction program, AFGROW.
