Abstract

The method of composite patch repair is a very modern method of repairing damaged aircraft structures, which presents many advantages over the traditional methods of repair. Many analytical as well as numerical methods have been suggested, from time to time, for the stress analysis of such bonded repairs. The engineer (especially one with not very much experience or theoretical background) who will be asked to design a repair may find it difficult to choose the most appropriate method for the specific problem that he has to deal with, among the large number of available analysis methods. The scope of this paper is to suggest a very specific, standardized, step by step analysis methodology for damaged/repaired aircraft structural components.
