Abstract:
A formulation is presented for extending structural system design concepts from safety and serviceability to damage tolerability. The assumptions necessary to implement damage tolerability concepts in structural system design are explained using both deterministic and probabilistic approaches. A particular emphasis is placed upon redundancy measures and their use in system damage-tolerant optimum design. Examples of solutions for optimum system design for safety, serviceability, and damage tolerability are presented.
