CONSTRUCTION AND ANALYSIS OF AIRCRAFT ACCIDENT DATABASE AND CASE STUDIES RELATED TO FAILURES OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES
The worldwide aircraft accident database, which covers most of the fatal or hull-loss accidents of aircraft heavier than 5,700kg (12,566 lb) since 1954 has been developed to study the most critical factors causing accidents and to improve air transportation safety. As examples of accident data analyses, major accident causes, secondary factors including pilot errors which are responsible for most accidents, and the chronological changes in accident patterns have been discussed. Interest was primarily focused on the accidents which are induced by inadequate design or manufacturing or by defects of materials. The essential factors causing structural failure accidents were studied by close examination of case studies of typical accidents.
