Guidelines for Implementation of Structural Health Monitoring on Fixed Wing Aircraft

2021-08-24
CURRENT
ARP6461A
This document is applicable to civil aerospace airframe structural applications where stakeholders are seeking guidance on the definition, development, and certification of structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies for aircraft health management applications. Inputs to the structural health management are obtained from SHM equipment and/or from onboard sensors, delivering the detection and characterization of damage, load, or environmental parameters for operational and damage monitoring. For the purpose of this document, SHM is defined as “the process of acquiring and analyzing data from on-board sensors to characterize the health of a structure.” The suite of on-board sensors could include any presently installed aircraft sensors, as well as new sensors to be defined in the future.

Structural Health Monitoring Considerations and Guidance Specific to Rotorcraft

2020-10-26
CURRENT
AIR6892
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides guidance on the definition, development, integration, qualification/certification, and deployment of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technologies applied to commercial and military rotorcraft. Increased implementation of SHM is believed to have numerous potential benefits, including enhanced operational safety and reduced maintenance burden. The focus is on augmenting ARP6461 to address specific unique aspects of implementing SHM on rotorcraft without unnecessarily duplicating guidance already contained in the ARP that is generally applicable to both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. For the purpose of this document, SHM is defined as “the process of acquiring and analyzing data from on-board sensors in order to determine the health of a structure”. Note that this is irrespective of whether the on-board sensors are a permanent or temporary installation.

Perspectives on Integrating Structural Health Monitoring Systems into Fixed-Wing Military Aircraft

2019-09-18
CURRENT
AIR6245
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is prepared for stakeholders seeking information about the evolution, integration, and approval of SHM technologies for military aircraft systems. The report provides this information in the form of (a) two military organizations’ perspectives on requirements, and (b) general SHM challenges and industry perspectives. The report only provides information to generate awarness of prespectives for military aircraft and, hence, assists those who are involved in developing SHM systems understanding the broad range of regulations, requirements, and standards published by military organizations that are available in the public domain from the military organizations.

ARP6461
This document is applicable to civil aerospace airframe structural applications where stakeholders are seeking guidance on the definition, development and certification of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technologies for aircraft health management applications. For the purpose of this document, SHM is defined as “the process of acquiring and analyzing data from on-board sensors to evaluate the health of a structure.” The suite of on-board sensors could include any presently installed aircraft sensors as well as new sensors to be defined in the future.
