Design of Lugs
A pragmatic and cost-effective approach to material selection and testing using Data Items ESDU 91008 (Strength of lugs under axial load), ESDU 06021 (Strength of lugs under transverse load) and ESDU 08007 (Strength of lugs under oblique load).
Having ESDU Data Items to re-design cracked bath-tub fittings cited in
FAA directive "saves company over a million dollars" according to a Senior Engineer.
An example of the use of Data Item ESDU 84039, "Strength of angles and club-foot fittings (transmitting tensile loads)"
Jet Engine and Fan Noise
An example of the use of Data Item ESDU 98019, "Computer-based estimation procedure for single-stream jet noise. Including far-field, static jet mixing noise database for circular nozzles."
