Both damage tolerant design and nondestructive inspection are essential for achieving structural integrity, yet these interrelated disciplines are generally studied independently and implemented by different individuals within an organization. Fundamentals of Structural Integrity is an unparalleled presentation of both of these technologies in a single volume that points out the many interconnected details that must function in concert to assure the prevention of structural failures. This groundbreaking volume introduces the concept of structural integrity and explains how it is achieved. It provides examples of threats to structural integrity, reviews structural certification policies, and presents detailed coverage of damage tolerant design procedures and nondestructive inspection methods.
