Abstract:

This proposal addresses the development of a new strain gage calibration methodology to help increase the accuracy of structural life estimation in naval aircraft. After understanding the current fatigue life testing procedures, we will develop economical and time-efficient loading mechanisms to be used to calibrate strain gages on different aircraft. To minimize potential errors, an experimental sensitivity study will be performed to maximize the consistency of the loading mechanisms. The result of the Phase I effort will be a robust design of a system that will be fully implemented in Phase II.
