Towards Aircraft Condition-based Maintenance: SHM for Damage Detection as In-situ NDI

This paper discusses promising techniques and technologies related to the damage detection aspects of SHM and makes a parallel to traditional NDI, especially in terms of reliability estimations. SHM-DD is seen as a cost-saving approach by reducing maintenance, inspection times, and disassembly requirements, but its on-aircraft implementation is not yet fully realized.
