Fundamentals of Structural Integrity: Damage Tolerant Design And Nondestructive Evaluation Damage tolerant design and nondestructive inspection are key tasks for ensuring that structures operate safely for long periods of service. Damage tolerance is the ability of a structure to resist pre-existent cracks for a given period of time and is an essential attribute of components whose failure could result in catastrophic loss of life or property. Nondestructive inspections define the maximum size of life-limiting defects that could be present at a given time. Contents: Introduction. Review of Preliminary Concepts.
