INTEREST in the fatigue of cabins of transport aircraft has increased considerably in the last year or so. Fatigue tests on a complete aircraft, undertaken as part of the Comet accident investigation, gave indications that the fatigue life of pressure cabins could be more critical than had generally been supposed.
