Experience in Specifying/Prolonging the Airframe Time Limits
Problems of providing the safety of transport airplanes with respect to the fatigue strength have been considered by Soviet researchers since the mid 1950’s. The adopted approaches basically correspond to those used all over the world, however some aspects of both technical and managerial efforts have different features. The main one is that the airframe is considered as an aging one from the beginning of the aircraft fleet service. At the present time this is a complete system, which has shown a high efficiency. The methodological and managerial base of the system and some scientific and technical aspects are discussed in this report.
