The publication contains 11 papers. The papers present the state-of-the-art damage tolerance analysis of civil and military aircraft. The criteria for slow crack and fast fracture are reviewed and fracture toughness data for plane strain and stress are discussed. Ways of evaluating and using da/dn data are presented. Stress intensity of complex structures is analyzed and techniques for appraising stress intensity factors are surveyed. Damage tolerance analysis is made of actual aircraft component. Finally, an evaluation is made of the accuracy of residual strength and crack growth predictions. predictions.
