Boeing To Use Computer Simulations Instead of Physical Certification Tests For Some Aircraft

Enviado
 
First reported by Reuters, in an ironic twist, Boeing wants to skip some physical certification tests and use only simulations. The airplane manufacturer is looking at "reducing the scope and duration of certain costly physical tests used to certify the planemaker's new aircraft," Reuters first reported over the weekend. The manufacturer wants to switch to software-based trials for things such as wing load testing, "instead of doing things like bending actual, and highly… (www.theregister.co.uk) Más...

Computer software predicts the weather.... We all know how well that works.

This is genuinely hard to believe - they cannot really have said anything quite that stupid at this time

Boeing is so used to the U.S. Government doing exactly what they tell them to do, that they think they can push this through too.

whoops:.... we expect the wing to remain in place..... sorry about that....

i question the mindset of the folks directing policy at Boeing. The rite of passage in a new wing design is when the wing is bent in the test to destruction. The resounding "crack" sound gives me a chill and some confidence as well, for under no situation vaguely possible ought the wing to be ever bent as in the test, so we expect the wind to remain in place , doing its purpose. The manufacturer must be even more foolish than recently revealed, if there is serious policy to make that test wholly digital..

Ah. The irony.

I’m sure it saves a lot of time and money switching to software, but I don’t think it’s the right path. Everything Boeing does going forward will be critiqued down to the smallest detail and there’s just something’s a simulation isn’t going to be able to provide.

Agreed. We already see what could possibly go wrong when Boeing used software to figure out and resolve a hardware problem.

There asking for trouble here. Its best to do what we have now and put a wing into a test stand and bend it to destruction. Yes computer simulation is cheaper and can be safer then flying parts but being able to bend the real thing can find design flaws the computer cant.

Then? Something like your writing skills? We could just go back to the old way of doing things just make the parts thicker that will fix all and didn't way back. Don't know about your statement.
