Bonded Joints and Repairs to Composite Airframe Structures is a single-source reference on the state-of-the-art in this rapidly growing area. It provides a thorough analysis of both internal and external joints and repairs, as well as discussions on damage tolerance, non-destructive inspection, self-healing repairs, and other essential information not only on the joints and repairs themselves, but critically, on how they differ from bonds and repairs to metallic aircraft. Authors Wang and Duong bring a valuable combination of academic research and industry expertise to the book, drawing on their cutting-edge composite technology experience, including analytic and computational leadership of damage and repair planning for the Boeing 787. Intended for graduate students, engineers, and scientists working on the subject in aerospace industry, government agencies, research labs, and academia, the book is an important addition to the limited literature in the field. Offers rare coverage of composite joints and repairs to composite structures, focusing on the state of the art in analysis Combines the academic, government, and industry expertise of the authors, providing research findings in the context of current and future applications Covers internal and external joints and repairs, as well as damage tolerance, non-destructive inspection, and self-healing repairs Ideal for graduate students, engineers, and scientists working in the aerospace industry, government agencies, research labs, and academia

A Critique of Aircraft Airframe Cost Models

This document examines a sample of seven aircraft airframe cost models. The intent is to determine whether the model output is reasonable over a broad range of inputs, what limitations should be noted, and where one model might be preferable to the others. The critique shows that all the models have some deficiencies and all should be used with caution. The more recent models appear to be better than the older ones, which may be taken as a sign of progress, but it is plain that more progress is needed. Some of the lessons learned in this review may be helpful in pointing out how the next generation of aircraft airframe cost models could be improved.

Aircraft Sustainment and Repair is a one-stop-shop for practitioners and researchers in the field of aircraft sustainment, adhesively bonded aircraft joints, bonded composites repairs, and the application of cold spray to military and civil aircraft. Outlining the state-of-the-art in aircraft sustainment, this book covers the use of quantitative fractography to determine the in-service crack length versus flight hours curve, the effect of intergranular cracking on structural integrity and the structural significance of corrosion. The book additionally illustrates the potential of composite repairs and SPD applications to metallic airframes. Covers corrosion damage assessment and management in aircraft structures Includes a key chapter on U.S. developments in the emerging field of supersonic particle deposition (SPD) Shows how to design and assess the potential benefits of both bonded composite repairs and SPD repairs to metallic aircraft structures to meet the damage tolerance requirements inherent in FAA ac 20-107b and the U.S. Joint Services
