During the realization of the CESAR Project (Cost-Effective Small AiRcraft) the WP2.4 Task – “Smart Structural Health Monitoring” has been finished.

The realization of this task consisted of:

  • the theoretical basis of the Idea of Continuous Fatigue Estimation of aircraft structures,
  • the identification of critical points of aircraft structure,
  • the elaboration and laboratory tests of Autonomous Loads and Fatigue Recorder (ALFR),
  • the ALFR recorder flight tests on the RC aerobatic model Jak 52,
  • the final flight tests on the PZL 126 Iskierka aircraft – in co-operation with PZL – Mielec A Sikorsky Aircraft Company,
  • two patent applications in preparation.

The Institute of Aviation was the SubTask leader of this task.
The extensive report of the WP2.4 Task of the CESAR Project has been prepared:

  • M. Debski, J. Kazmierski, D. Debski, A. Szot: Fatigue Analysis Tool – CESAR-IoA-D2.4.2-1/2007 , and publication:
