Call for Abstracts - Tracks

You are invited to submit an abstract for your proposed presentation or training course. Submitted abstracts should enhance the technical discussion of the various initiatives and technology supporting aging aircraft issues while continuing to focus on airframe structural integrity, emphasis will also be placed on those common technologies that effectively support aircraft integrity, equipment reliability and airworthiness in general, and on new developments in military or commercial aircraft integrity programs. Submission of abstracts in these areas is highly encouraged.

Listed below are the tracks for more detailed information.

ASIP Overviews, Case Histories, Best Practices

ASIP execution in a more general sense such as ASIP Master Plan development, establishment of structural design criteria, and results of multiple ASIP Tasks and/or elements. Time-phased scheduling and integration of ASIP tasks for design, development, production, structural certification, and force management of the aircraft structure.

Submit Your Abstract

Structural Certification

Correlation of analysis with ground and/or flight testing that verifies a structural integrity requirement such as strength, rigidity, durability, or damage tolerance was achieved.

Submit Your Abstract

Materials & Processes

Materials, processes, joining methods, and structural concepts that result in a structurally efficient, cost-effective aircraft structure. This includes topics that focus on advanced composites, additive manufacturing, and other novel M&P, manufacturing methods, etc.

Submit Your Abstract

Corrosion Prevention & Control

Evaluation of design concepts, materials and processes, cost trade studies, etc. relative to CP&C. Selection of materials, processes, joining methods, finish systems, coating systems, and films relative to CP&C.

Submit Your Abstract

Structural Analysis, Development Testing, Full-Scale Testing

Topics related to ASIP Task II analyses such as mass properties, loads, strength, flutter, vibration, acoustic fatigue, durability, or damage tolerance. Topics related to ASIP Task II development testing to include building-block testing. Topics related to ASIP Task III such as full-scale static testing, full-scale durability testing, flight testing, or climatic testing.

Submit Your Abstract

Non-Destructive Inspection, Structural Health Monitoring

NDI processes used for production process monitoring and quality control of structural components to achieve durability and damage tolerance control requirements. NDI equipment, procedures, and processes used for aircraft structure sustainment. SHM system material, geometry, accessibility, failure rates, calibration, self-diagnostic methods, sensor probability of detection and resulting system-level probability of detection.

Submit Your Abstract

Usage/ Environment/ Maintenance Data Collection & Evaluation

Loads/Environment Spectra Survey (L/ESS), Individual Aircraft Tracking (IAT), or force management database development, execution, and capabilities.

Submit Your Abstract

Risk Analysis/ Assessment/ Mitigation

Risk analysis or assessment used to identify hazard probability and consequence, determine inspection intervals, or reduce economic or availability consequences associated with damage repair.

Submit Your Abstract

Structural Repairs, Enhancements, Replacements, Modifications

Structural repair design and analysis, life enhancement techniques such as cold working and laser shock peening, structural part or component replacement with new design, modification programs such as a service life extension.

Submit Your Abstract

Force Management Execution

Other force management tasks not specifically cited above such as aircraft structure teardown inspection, analytical condition inspection programs, flight clearance for new stores or store configurations, or determining when a comprehensive force management update (loads spectrum, durability and damage tolerance analysis, force structural maintenance plan, etc.) is required.
