Probabalistic Structural Risk Assessment and Risk Management for Small Airplanes

The purpose of the research is to develop a comprehensive probabilistic methodology such that Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) engineers can conduct a risk assessment of a general aircraft structural issue in support of policy decisions. Requisite supporting technology and data issues will be investigated. In particular, probability distributions of relevant inputs will be developed such that a realistic risk assessment can be obtained. Representative sensitivity analysis will be executed in order to demonstrate and validate the methodology.
