Description

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.

Key Features

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

Readership

Composite Safety specialists in industry, government and academia, aeronautical and aerospace engineers, engineers and scientists in structures, materials science, safety, quality control, testing, design, development and applied research, and advanced graduate students.
