The Challenge

To achieve high-performance aircraft structures, new tailored and cost-effective materials are continuously designed and tested. Nowadays Fibre Metal Laminate (FML) technology is optimised for fatigue and damage tolerance properties, which is one of the reasons for its application in the upper shells of the A380 aircraft fuselage. Fatigue crack propagation in FML is a subject of great interest which has only recently reached a well defined theory and validated modelling tools are required.
