Paper Title:
Analysis of Residual Stress Effect on Fatigue Crack Propagation in Bonded Aeronautical Stiffened Panels
  Abstract

The application of adhesively bonded straps made of high-static strength materials on aeronautical stiffened panels to retard the fatigue skin crack growth is currently a topical research subject. The detrimental effect of the residual stress fields induced as a consequence of the dissimilar coefficients of thermal expansion of the skin and strap materials on the fatigue skin crack propagation was investigated. The residual stresses induced in a stiffened panel representative of a pressurized fuselage shell with titanium doublers in the middle of the stringer bays is numerically quantified for two likely operational temperatures. Their effect on the fatigue crack propagation is analyzed by means of a linear elastic fracture mechanics approach. The results show that adhesively bonded straps on the cracked surface can significantly retard the fatigue crack propagation but, in order to achieve reliable and conservative predictions on their performances, the effect of the residual stress fields they introduce must be taken into account.
