Aerospace Damage Tolerance


Crack growth rates and directions in the aerospace flight component.

Aerospace damage tolerance requires that a part will not grow a crack of critical size, in this case leading to a fuel leak within the duration of the maintenance interval. It was required to assess the damage tolerance of an aerospace flight component where fuel was circulated in the base of the component to cool the electronics. The challenge was to determine that a crack would not grow to a critical size which would lead to a fuel leak within the duration of the maintenance interval.
