Advanced design concepts and maintenance by integrated risk evaluation for aerostructures

Advanced design concepts and maintenance by integrated risk evaluation for aerostructures

Objective

The overall objective of ADMIRE is to develop a probabilistic foundation of damage tolerant design for metallic aircraft structures taking into account innovative investigations on the initial flaw concept, crack growth and residual strength. The expected major achievements are: benefits for maintenance and inspection programmes, technical background to comply with current/future airworthiness regulations, establishment of a risk procedure for structures designed on damage- tolerant principles, identification of design keys which have economic potential and evaluation of partial safety factors to optimise the overall safety structure. The design benefits are realised through reduced aircraft weight or increased operating life whilst maintaining structural integrity (safety). The project is in support of EU policies on energy, environment, transport, economic, social cohesion, industry and research and technology
