Our notions of war prevention are based on well-known deterrence formulations. The author argues that conventional thinking on deterrence is wrongheadedly preoccupied with the short-term military balance, when in fact, a nation's long-term political and economic prospects may dominate military considerations in the decision on whether or not to go to war. Five case studies of decisions to attack a......

The undetected propagation of a fatigue crack constitutes a significant cause of aircraft and other structural failures.To raise the structural failure load to a relatively high level, the manufacturer can divide the structure into many small elements, which significantly increases the ability of a structure to tolerate an element failure.This report presents a procedure for calculating the probab......

A study of the three major problem areas in preventing fatigue failures: (1) prediction of the fluctuating stresses that cause fatigue; (2) behavior of the structural material undergoing these stresses; and (3) scatter in stresses encountered in service and in fatigue behavior. The data most important for design, and some techniques for using these data, are presented and discussed. The designer's......
