S.O.W. - UNIVERSITY WORK Airframe Fatigue PROJECT TITLE : Crack Growth Analysis of Cold Expanded Holes OBJECTIVE : Develop a methodology in order to take into consideration the residual stresses generated by cold expansion of a hole during crack growth analysis. DESCRIPTION: The student will be asked to be familiar with classical fracture mechanic analysis methodology used at Bell Helicopter and perform typical analysis. Based on previous residual stress modelization through non linear finite element analysis, the student will develop a method to implement the cold expansion effects into current fracture mechanic analysis techniques. Evaluate cold worked holes residual stress. Assess and develop a method to implement the residual stress into the crack growth analysis. Perform typical crack growth analysis using the developed method.
