Abstract

Failed plate assemblies from two aircrafts were analyzed. Fractographic study showed that in both the cases the failure was by fatigue. Evidences suggest that fatigue is stress related. It is recommended that a high strength aluminum alloy (2XXX or 7XXX series) be used instead of 6XXX series alloy for the above applications. It is also suggested that stress analysis be performed to examine the adequacy of the present structure for the applications in question.
