Life Prediction of Aileron Actuator Using Finite Element Analysis

Authors: Byeong-Sam Kimi, Kyoungwoo Park, Hyeon-Hee Kim

The presented paper describes the application of a modern fatigue prediction tool based on FE-analysis results to highly specific to aerospace industry, fatigue life prediction a problem on a actuator system. The wings are mounted inside the actuator system in order to needs of aileron design and kinematic motion system and structural analysis, to ensure the structural safety analysis results are presented. FE Analysis can provide the estimation of the crack growth curves with sufficient accuracy, even in case of complicated aileron actuator structures which are crucial for preserving aileron integrity and which participate in transfer of load. Probability of crack detection or any other damage detection is a result of many factors.
