Bird Strike: An Experimental, Theoretical and Numerical Investigation

 
9780081000939: Bird Strike: An Experimental, Theoretical and Numerical Investigation

Bird strikes are one of the most dangerous threats to civil and military flight safety: between 1960 and 2014, they were responsible for the destruction of approximately 150 civil aircraft and the deaths of 271 people.

Bird Strike presents a summary of the damage imposed on the aviation industries by their avian counterparts. This book first presents and analyzes the statistics obtained from bird strike databases and offers various methods for minimizing the overall probability of bird-strike events. The next chapters explore how to analyze the ability of aero-engine critical structures to withstand bird-strike events by implementing reliable experimental, theoretical, and numerical methods. Finally, the book investigates the impact of bird strikes on different components of aircrafts, such as the metal fuselage, composite fuselage, engines, wings, and tail, and proposes two new bird models, with explanations of their use.

  • Provides up-to-date information for aviation staff and researchers working on aircraft safety
  • Offers comprehensive investigations on all the statistical, theoretical, experimental, and numerical aspects of bird strike
  • Includes studies carried out on bird strike and provides the reader with the important findings of each paper

About the Author:

Reza Hedayati is a Researcher in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. He completed his Ph.D. at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) and his undergraduate studies at Isfahan University of Technology. His research interests lie in the area of Biomedical engineering, Biomaterials, metal foams, Composite structures, Multiscale Finite Element modeling, and beam and plate analytical analyses. Reza has also cooperated with TU Delft on analytical solutions, experimental testing, and multiscaling modeling of porous materials under static, dynamic, and fatigue loadings since 2013. In recent years, he has focused on better techniques for modeling and analyzing bird impact on different components of aircraft such as tailplane, windshield, and fuselage. He has proposed two novel bird models which have explained many discrepancies between the numerical, experimental and theories of bird strike. He has also collaborated actively with researchers in other fields of Mechanical Engineering, particularly 3D geometry modeling using CT images, Fatigue and Fracture, and Biomechanics.

Dr. Mojtaba Sadighi was born in 1960. He received a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran, in 1985, and achieved his MSc and PhD from UMIST, Manchester, England. He is an Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Amirkabir University of Technology with his main research interests including impact mechanics, composite material, sandwich structures, cellular solids, and bird strike. He was the Head of the Solid Mechanics Group in the Mechanical Engineering Department for 2 years and he has also been a management committee member for the Iranian Association of Mechanical Engineers since 2009. Dr Sadighi was the conference chairman at the 15th International Conference on Mechanical Engineering held by the Iranian Society of Mechanical Engineers (ISME).
