Lecture 17 - Fail Safe and Safe Life

Introduction to Aerospace Engineering II

TU Delft

In this lecture Prof. Ir. R. Alderliesten talks about damage tolerance, and the fail safe and safe life design philosophies. He will talk about how maintenance and inspection affect the design criteria of critically loaded parts of an aircraft. The second half the the lecture he will focus primarily on fatigue in materials. He will talk about the phenomenon of stress concentrations around holes and cracks, and how they give rise to the fatigue phenomenon.
