Abstract
FATIGUE LIFE EXPENDITURE DETERMINATIONS UNDER THE SAFE PROGRAM DO NOT ACCOUNT FOR FLIGHT VARIATIONS FOR DIFFERENT MISSIONS, OR EMPLOY STATE-OF-THE-ART SEQUENCE-ACCOUNTABLE FATIGUE ANALYSES. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING THE FLIGHT PURPOSE CODE DATA TO DEVELOP CORRELATIONS BETWEEN FLIGHT PURPOSE CODES, GROSS WEIGHTS, AND FLIGHT MANEUVERS SPECTRA; AND ESTABLISH ACTUAL LOADING HISTORIES. CORRELATIONS WILL BE ESTABLISHED UTILIZING ROUTINELY DOCUMENTED DATA FROM COUNTING ACCELEROMETER RECORDS, 3M FLIGHT RECORDS (YELLOW SHEET), AIRCRAFT/SQUADRON LOG BOOK RECORDS AND FROM FLEET FLIGHT LOAD SURVEY DATA. SUBSTANTIATION OF THE VALIDITY OF DERIVED CORRELATIONS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED FOR A SELECTED TACTICAL AIRCRAFT.
