Accurate methods are presented for estimating the acoustic loading, structural response, and fatigue life of military aircraft structures. This report presents over sixty tables, 110 charts and nomographs, five computer programs and forty worked examples illustrating the use of the different methods. These results stem from a review and evaluation of over 300 references related to the various topics associated with sonic fatigue. This report is organized into independent sections with the subject classification allowing for ease of identification and future extension as required. Sufficient detail is provided so that the entire handbook stands as an independent source of sonic fatigue design data.
