Fatigue Scatter Factor of Whole Life and Reliability of Aircraft Structure Service Life
The prediction of aircraft structure service life is of great importance to safety of aircraft structure and human beings. The relation between aircraft structure service life and reliability can be found by utilizing the fatigue scatter factor of whole life. Only when the service life satisfies the requirements of reliability, can the safety of airplane be ensured. The fatigue scatter factors of the service life accords with lognormal distribution and Weibull distribution were studied to provide important reference for predicting the safe service life of aircraft structure.
