Bird Strike

Bird strikes are one of the most dangerous threats to civil and military flight safety: between 1960 and 2014, they were responsible for the destruction of approximately 150 civil aircraft and the deaths of 271 people. Bird Strike presents a summary of the damage imposed on the aviation industries by their avian counterparts. This book first presents and analyzes the statistics obtained from bird strike databases and offers various methods for minimizing the overall probability of bird-strike events. The next chapters explore how to analyze the ability of aero-engine critical structures to withstand bird-strike events by implementing reliable experimental, theoretical, and numerical methods. Finally, the book investigates the impact of bird strikes on different components of aircrafts, such as the metal fuselage, composite fuselage, engines, wings, and tail, and proposes two new bird models, with explanations of their use. Provides up-to-date information for aviation staff and researchers working on aircraft safety Offers comprehensive investigations on all the statistical, theoretical, experimental, and numerical aspects of bird strike Includes studies carried out on bird strike and provides the reader with the important findings of each paper

Groundbreaking Handbook Offers Detailed Research and Valuable Methodology to Address Dangerous and Costly Aviation Hazard Though annual damages from bird and bat collisions with aircraft have been estimated at $400 million in the United States and up to $1.2 billion in commercial aviation worldwide and despite numerous conferences and councils dedicated to the issue, very little has been published on this expensive and sometimes-lethal flying risk. Bird Strike in Aviation seeks to fill this gap, providing a comprehensive guide to preventing and

On a warm and golden afternoon, October 4, 1960, a Lockheed Electra jet turboprop carrying 72 souls took off from Logan Airport. Seconds later, the plane slammed into a flock of 10,000 starlings, and abruptly plummeted into Winthrop Harbor. The collision took 62 lives and gave rise to the largest rescue mobilization in Boston's history, which included civilians in addition to police, firefighters, skindivers, and Navy and Coast Guard air-sea rescue teams. Largely because of the quick action and good seamanship of Winthrop citizens, many

Although the problem of collisions between birds and aircraft (bird strikes) has existed since the first man-made aircraft took off from the solid soil, a world-wide systematic work with the problem birds present to aircraft, was not started up till the early 1960s. The start was brought about by the introduction of fast jet driven airplanes which had increased the danger of aircraft and birds sharing the same airspace. In November 1963 a symposium was arranged by the French authorities in

Bird hazards to aircraft can create serious inflight emergency conditions if the pilot and crew are not prepared to handle the situation. As a pilot who has experienced two serious bird strikes that resulted in emergency landings and as a biologist who has spent the last nine years working on bird hazards to aircraft, some personal observations may assist other pilots in dealing with a midair collision with birds. Some of the aspects of the bird-strike hazard are examined.

Standard tail surfaces from a piston-engine, turboprop and jet-type transport aircraft were subjected to bird strikes to determine the size of the bird that would cause structural failure when impacted at speeds ranging from 135 to 378 mph. Then the leading edges of the piston-engine and turboprop airplane stabilizers were modified by the incorporation of various structural reinforcements, and bird strike conditions used on the standard surfaces were duplicated to obtain a direct comparison of the vulnerability of the standard and modified

Analysis of strike data is critical to determine the true economic costs of bird strikes, determine the magnitude of safety issues, and develop preventive measures. Analysis of USAF bird-strike data identified trends and indicated suggested relationships among factors contributing to damaging strikes. From FY 1988 through FY 1997, the annual mean was 2,668 bird strikes with peaks evident in fall and spring. Daylight and dusk were hazardous for bird strikes. More bird strikes occurred during airfield operations - aircraft are at low altitudes
