May 22, 2015 · As the wing flexed rearward, the relatively weak structure in this area was crushed. The aft wing attach area on the fuselage was also damaged, evidenced by visible white stress fractures around the fixture. I was shocked to see this much damage from what appeared to be a minimum impact. The aircraft was barely moving. Corrosion and Inspection of General Aviation Aircraftattack. This type of damage can take place internally as well as on the surface. As in the rotting of wood, this deterioration may change the smooth surface, weaken the interior, or damage or loosen adjacent parts. 2.2 Water or water vapour containing salt combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to produce the main source of corrosion in aircraft. Detection of Damages in Hybrid Composite Plates with the Abstract. The presented article is devoted to the problem of detection and localization of damages occurring in components of structures, which are made of hybrid composite materials.
Methane Monitor increases speed and cuts costs of detecting greenhouse gas leaks from the air Image:Steve Karcher, Ball Aerospace The methane plume imaged from a light aircraft by Methane Monitor Flight Control Protection from Damage by Strong Winds Description. Almost all aircraft types have some means of protecting the primary flight control surfaces - rudder, elevator/stabiliser and ailerons - from significant movement due to strong winds or exposure to jet efflux or prop wash which occur whilst the aircraft is parked out of service or taxiing. The way in which this is accomplished is related to the way in which the flight controls are Impact Damage Formation on Composite Aircraft Apr 05, 2012 · Impact damage is an ongoing threat of major concern, particularly with the reliance on visual detection to find damage, which worked well for metal skins resistance of composite aircraft structures to damage from blunt impacts sources, and (ii) provide critical information on the mode and extent of seeded
Oct 01, 2013 · Impact force magnitude detection and site location for clamped plates have direct relevance to the maintenance of aircraft and spacecraft structures. This article presents the impact identification of an aluminum plate structure based on least squares support vector machines. Non-destructive Testing Applications in Commercial Applications :Detection of surface defects or structural damage in all materials. Optical instruments are used for visual checks of internal areas and for deep holes and bores of aircraft structure, landing gears etc. Widely used to monitor engine components, such as, turbine wheels and nozzles, compressor vanes and blades combustion cans Nondestructive Bond Testing for Aircraft CompositesApplication Notes
The OmniScan PA is already referenced in maintenance manuals of aircraft manufacturers for various applications, including impact damage detection in composite laminated structures For such Rediscovering Low Altitude:Getting Past the Air Forces Apr 07, 2016 · Only four aircraft were hit during periods of darkness for the entire month of February. The number of aircraft hit spiked during the battle of Khafji and the ground war, when fixed-wing aircraft were heavily involved in supporting ground troops. Most of those hits were during the day, as would be expected in a radar-denied environment. Unit 71:Inspection and Repair of Airframe Components 1 Know about aircraft adhesives, sealants, bonding techniques, repair procedures and the types and detection of defects in aircraft composite materials 2 Understand general airframe structural repairs, the structural repair manual and structural control programmes

It blasts a hole in the plane's wing, and research suggests drones could also shatter a cockpit window.
Aircraft Impact Damage Tomasz Wierzbicki Professor of Applied Mechanics, MIT Liang Xue As the fuselage and wings cut through the steel facade of the Towers, the affected portions of the column sheared off. damage the wings into the central spar, open beam sections, ribs, and skins are used.
