Fatigue meter data obtained during operational flights of Fokker F27 and Fokker F28 aircraft were re-processed and analyzed to study the variation in load experience between different aircraft of the same type. The Data covered about 470000 flights, made by 101 aircraft of 51 different operators. A simple algorithm was developed to quantify the...

Many military aircraft are used more severely and over a longer periodthan originally intended. Consequently, a careful life management, including service load monitoring has become indispensable. This paper describes the development of a simple method to quantify the severity in terms of "potential crack growth" of recorded load spectra. This...

The problems of Ageing Aircraft are worldwide. Hence, actions to overcome or prevent these problems should be taken in international collaboration. The Federal Aviation Administration FAA and the Netherlands Civil Aviation Department RLD have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation in the area of structural integrity, with specific reference to...

Paper presented at the 17th ICAS Congress, Stockholm, September 1990. The actual service load experience of aircraft may differ appreciably from design assumptions. The necessity to monitor service loads is generally recognized now for military aircraft. This paper starts with a general review of the overall life management procedure commonly...

This report reviews the applicability of damage tolerance concepts to helicopter structures. After a general discussion of the damage tolerance concept, attention is paid to the specific aspects of the helicopter loading environment. Examples are presented of damage tolerant design, both in metal and in composite structures. However, it is felt...

The report starts with a general review of the loading of transport aircraft fuselages and the consequent fuselage skin stresses Taking the F-28 fuselage as an example, the potential weight savings that can be obtained by using ARALL as skin material are assessed. The report ends with conclusions and recommendations

The effects of systematic variations in mean stress level and in spectrum and ground load severity of a flight simulation test programme have been investigated on riveted specimens (fatigue life) and sheet specimens with central saw cut (crack growth). The fatigue life and crack propagation life in Alclad 202U-T3 compared with Alclad TOT5-T6...

The Transport Wing Standard programme (TWIST) published in March 1973 is considered to be representative for the load history of the wing root of transport aircraft. A description of the shortened version of this load programme called MINITWIST is given in the present report. In all cases where testing time is a prohibitive factor to use TWIST,...

The paper starts with a general discussion on various aspects of life re-assessment. Specific attention is paid to the possibility of re-assesgrnent by means of comparative fatigue tests on specimens. As an illustration of this method, the paper gives a description of the life-re-assessment procedures applied by the Royal Netherlands Airforce...

Fokker-VFW is carrying out a completely new fatigue evaluation of the F-2T aircraft, covering lives up to 120000 flights. This evaluation includes; a)A complete inventory of the configuration status of the F-2T fleet, b)An inventory and evaluation of existing test experience, c)Evaluation of service experience, d)Analytical predictions of life...

Riveted specimens that are considered representative for F-27 type wing structure were subjected to comparative flight simululation test in which the gust load severity and Ground-Air-Ground cycle were systematically varied. The effect of these variations on crack propagation behaviour was studied by means of crack growth tests on 2 mm sheet...

Fatigue tests under flight simulation loading were done on simple notched 2024-T3 Alclad sheet specimens. Reduction of the gust load amplitudes resulted in an increase of crack initiation life but hardly influenced crack propagation. Reduction of the overall stress level increased both initiation and crack propagation life. The observed...

Fail-safety or damage tolerance i s generally considered as a highly desirable and in some countries as anobligatory property of transport aircraft structures. Recently the USAP issued a detailed requirement on damage tolerance. In the present report various aspects of damage tolerance are discussed with specific reference to the USAP...
