Description

I want to talk a little bit this morning about the damage tolerance philosophy of the Air Force as applied to new systems. I'm going to talk particularly about metals and try to indicate those areas where the philosophy that we're applying in our metal structure is equally applicable to both adhesive bonded joints and composite materials, the idea being that the techniques to satisfy the requirements will change and some of the requirements will change, but the philosophy will be the same. The philosophy has to do with beginning to recognize, and I think we now all do, that structure that is manufactured, rolled out the door and put into service is defective at the time it rolls out the door.
