Focus On:
Dealing with Vibration in Aviation Applications

For design and safety engineers, vibration in aviation vehicles can cause severe headaches. Over time, vibration loosens the fasteners that are maintaining critical joints. It also can lead to fatigue and wear on the wings, mechanical flaps, and overall hull structure. Today’s engineers have several options for predicting and combatting excessive vibration. Simulation and advanced stress-strain tools help them pinpoint the aircraft’s weak points. In addition, lightweight fasteners and energy alternatives can help mitigate the damage due to excessive vibration. This e-book spotlights design points for engineers to use when designing major aircraft.
