.... The fatigue methodology adopted in the ASIP was the reliability approach, which became known as the safe-life method. This safe-life approach, used in the development of USAF aircraft in the 1960s, involved analysis and testing to 4 times the anticipated service life. On the commercial scene, another...

... previously. Resist the temptation to immediately assign the same root cause to failures that appear similar. If you fall into that mindset, you will give the same recommendation—which obviously did not solve the problem the first time. For example, 16 years ago I was given a seven-ply bellows made from...

... on April 28, 1988 is one such incident in which a section of the fuselage tore away in flight. Tiny cracks at the rivet holes had joined to form a larger crack of critical length. An insight into the evolution of corrosion pit to fatigue crack and the time for such a transition was obtained...

... a company and introduced a top-of-the-line lightweight trailer, the Bowlus Road Chief , in 1934. The most distinctive feature of the trailer was its aerodynamic, brightly polished aluminum exterior. Bowlus constructed the exteriors with polished Duralumin or an Alcoa derivative at the time (probably Alclad...
