This book extends the focus to all the entities that participate in the successful quest for safety and demonstrates how design, manufacturing, maintenance, (inspection), operation, and requirements (regulations) all are part of successful, safe innovation and necessary to assure safe flight through the life of the vehicle. It addresses the notion that safety is a function of time and that vigilant risk management is only successful if it includes all participating entities.

It is a companion to the author's first volume, Composite Structure: Design, Safety and Innovation, published by Elsevier in June 2005.

The book

- eliminates an unacceptable 'gap' in the world of safety

- represents a 'new' approach to designing, manufacturing, maintaining, operating and regulating composite airplane structures

- for professionals in the aerospace structural development arena whether in indusrty, academia or government

    Authoes Review

    The final recommendations by The White House commission of Aviation Sfety and Security resulted in Safety Measure Requirements that are Objective and Performance driven. This book was created based on a Foundation and Philosophy that satisfies those requirements. The approach includes all Elements of Safety that influence the Probability of an Unsafe State. The variability of and the number of processes involved clearly establish a case-by-case situation which is described by nummerical illustrations for different geometry levels and designs
