Probabilistic Structural Design and Risk Assessment
The Aerospace Structures Section has been a leader in the development of practical aircraft probabilistics based design concepts. Our methods use the latest in probabilistic concepts and acceptance criteria.
We have a sustained relationship with major airframe designers in the evolution from margin of safety oriented design
methods to design toward an optimum of probability of failure.
