Famous Failures Webinar: Fatigue in Transportation

May 24, 2021 2:36 pm

Fatigue has always been a major issue in designing for transportation, particularly airplanes. This webinar presented three airplane failures from NTSB and British Ministry reports that were the result of fatigue: the DeHavilland Comets in 1954, Aloha 243 in 1988, and Southwest 1380 in 2018. It also included a brief discussion of fatigue and a fatigue failure of a box trailer from the NSL files.
