This is an electronic version of the revised U.S. Air Force Damage Tolerant Design Handbook. The technical content of the 2002 edition is enhanced by the addition of new developments in the areas of corrosion, widespread fatigue damage, and probabilistic methods. New sample problems are included which illustrate the stress intensity factor calculation, fatigue crack life prediction, residual strength risk assessment, resistance curves, inspection intervals, and analysis of aircraft areas, including longeron, wing spars, windshield doubler, fuselage skin, lap joints, layered structure, and flat panels. The revised handbook has 11 sections. An overview of MIL-HDBK-1530 ASIP Guidance and design guidelines specified in the Joint Service Specification Guide JSSG-2006, and an overview of sustainment in aging aircraft, have been included in Section 1. The handbook provides guidance for analysis and design of damage tolerant aircraft structures.
