Supervisor:
Department of Aerospace Engineering
Synopsis:

The course is intended for those interested in helicopter area. Graduates will have practical knowledge of helicopter durability and fatigue failures with reference to design, production, maintenance and operation. It will also describe some aircraft accidents and their analysis, typical fatigue failures, fatigue propagation and durability prolongation. The conclusion is dedicated to aviation regulations.

Requirements:

No requirements.
