Abstract:

The challenges of designing modern aircraft continue to drive the development of more advanced analytical tools often these more advanced analytical tools themselves require development of other enabling technologies such as powerful computers and associated software. The primary historical objective of this project was to develop the infrastructure and to demonstrate that key enabling technologies such as faster and bigger personal computers, as well as database and programming software, have evolved to the point that more advanced analytical tools for analyzing the damage tolerance of aircraft structures are now possible.
