Analytical solution exists for relatively simple cases. Due to complicated boundary conditions associated with the governing equations analytical approaches are used. Over the last decade or so finite element method has been firmly established as a standard procedure for the solution of practical fracture problems. The usefulness of stress intensity factors (SIF’s) in the analysis of the problems of residual strength, fracture and fatigue crack growth rate has resulted in effort being expanded o...
: Wing twist is an aerodynamic feature added to aircraft wings to adjust lift distribution along the wing. Often, the purpose of lift redistribution is to ensure that load distribution is uniform from wing tip to root, it ensures that the effective angle of attack is always lower at the wing tip than at the root, meaning the root will stall before the tip. This is desirable because the aircraft's flight control surfaces are often located at the wingtip, and the variable stall characteristics of ...
