The Evaluation of Cold Dwell Fatigue in Ti-6242

The purpose of this effort is to utilize the qualitative understanding of dwell fatigue developed under earlier Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funding to create and validate a quantitative predictive dwell fatigue model. Then, utilize the information to determine the degree to which dwell fatigue susceptibility of older, legacy hardware can be assessed non-destructively.
