DURABLE AND DAMAGE-TOLERANT COMPOSITE COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT STRUCTURE DESIGN APPROACH

The technical information needed to competently assure the safety and durability of composite commercial aircraft structure must include a broad base of disciplined test-validated analytical procedures supported by an extensive material and structural test data base. This paper briefly addresses the safety and durability goals and requirements. A plan for development of an analytical methodology and the required data base and a cursory assessment of the success potential for this plan are presented. Some test results related to the required data base are also presented.
