Widespread Fatigue Damage – An Issue for Aging and New Aircraft

Abstract:

Article Preview

Widespread Fatigue Damage (WFD) is a technical expression used in the certification of aircraft. The paper presents a set of issues which may influence the probability that a structural item exhibits WFD. The paper mainly follows the line of a stochastic approach to these subjects, and includes the influence of realistic parameters - like manufacturing - and tries to assess what may be the impact of new technologies.
