Aircraft Structural Safety : Effects of Explicit and Implicit Safety and Measures Uncertainty Reduction Mechanisms
(University of Florida, 2006)
Aircraft structural safety is achieved by using different safety measures such as safety and knockdown factors, tests and redundancy. Safety factors or knockdown factors can be either explicit (e.g., load safety factor of ...
The frictional contact problem of sliding rigid parabolic stamps on graded materials
This study presents an analytical procedure to determine the contact stress distribution at the surface of an FGM coating perfectly bonded to a homogeneous substrate. The coating is assumed to be loaded by a rigid stamp ...
