Abstract : This report contains the proceedings of the 1996 USAF Structural Integrity Program Conference held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, from 3-5 December 1996. The conference, which was sponsored by the Aeronautical Systems Center's Engineering Directorate and the Wright Laboratory's Flight Dynamics and Materials Directorates, was hosted by the San Antonio Air Logistics Center Aircraft Directorate, Aircraft Structural Integrity Branch (SA-ALC/LADD) This conference, as in previous years, was held to permit experts in the field of structural integrity to communicate with each other and to exchange views on how to improve the structural integrity of military weapon systems Sessions were primarily focused on analysis and testing, engine structural integrity, structural materials and inspections, structural repair, and force management.
