Proceedings includes 11 papers which illustrate how fracture mechanics is used in the design of aircraft structures and their components. The following areas are addressed: practical applications of fracture mechanics in the design of new aircraft; durability and damage tolerance assessment in aircraft in service; design methodology for built-up sheet structures; selection of aircraft structural materials using fracture mechanics; and some special problems. Selected papers are indexed separately.
