Abstract

This chapter documents the key findings of an investigation into the failure of an aircraft’s main wheel bearing housing. Using annotated images and a detailed SEM fractograph, it shows what investigators observed that led them to conclude that the flange on one of the hubs broke off due to a combination of fatigue, bending stresses, and wear. It also includes a recommendation to assess the structural integrity of the bearing housing after every 100 h of service using nondestructive techniques.
