Abstract

This article addresses the issue of the implementation of composite damage tolerance requirements as it relates to military aircraft. It presents a brief introduction on the durability impact threat, damage tolerance impact threat, and other damage tolerance damage threats. The article summarizes damage tolerance criteria and durability criteria for military aircraft. It discusses the damage tolerance design philosophy for metallic structures and composite structures of the aircraft. The article describes the implementation of a damage tolerance analysis methodology in terms of mechanics based model, regression algorithm, and semi-empirical analysis methodology.
