DOCTORAL DISSERTATION ABSTRACT
In Numerical Analysis and Structural Health Monitoring for Modern Fighter Aircraft, I examine the possibility of integrating the structural health and status of fighter aircraft’s primary and secondary structures into the onboard avionics components. Introducing a merging and collation of the efforts performed within structural engineering and avionics engineering during aircraft design, manufacture, and fielding.  I explored the dynamics and benefits of an integrated platform, whereas the structural health and limitations could be monitored at all stages of flight for utilization maximization and fault tolerant failure identification.  This process started by using the current systems and methods in place, discussing the methods and approaches currently accepted and in practice.  I underline the distinctive aspects and unique benefits of integrating these two differing aircraft disciplines.  Presenting a method whereas these two differing engineering fields can be bridged to provide a more efficient and real-time update of the specimen aircraft’s structural health that may be implementing by integrating an array of strategically placed sensors, load devices and thermal indicators at the time of aircraft manufacture or post deployment.  The problems uncovered during this research are addressed by considering how information (current health monitoring↔conceptual health monitoring axis) is analyzed (latent over time↔real-time axis) in the current maintenance and structural health monitoring community (Commercial and Military Approaches). Having reviewed the current standards and practices and transversely comparing them with a conceptual real-time approach, I discovered that safety, longevity, and overall sustainment of a military’s or even commercial aircraft can be extended extensively.  I concluded that a majority of current and future unforeseen failures can be identified years before they would surface using traditional health monitoring and manual practices.
Dissertation defended on January 10th 2005 at New York University in Paris before a jury composed of Jacques Lecarme (Paris III-La Sorbonne, president of the jury), Pierre Glaudes (Toulouse, thesis director), Eugène Nicole (New York University, thesis director), Serge Doubrovsky (NYU, reader) and Patrick Marot (Toulouse, reader).
