Development of a Design Procedure for Aeronautical Structures Based on Reliability

F. Javidrad; F. Dabirian

Volume 7, Issue 1 , March 2010, , Pages 59-67

  In this paper, an approach to aeronautical structural design based on reliability analysis is presented. In this way, the concept of level of safety is discussed and methods of its calculation using statistical data are described. Based on the concept of level of safety, a design procedure is proposed. ...  Read More

Damage Assessment using an Inverse Fracture Mechanics approach

F. Javidrad

Volume 4, Issue 1 , March 2007, , Pages 25-32

  This paper studies the application of an inverse methodology for problem solving in fracture mechanics using the finite element analysis. The method was applied to both detection of subsurface cracks and the study of propagating cracks. The procedure for detection of subsurface cracks uses a first order ...  Read More
