A380 Analysis Ribfoot Retro Fit & Series Modification FDT
A380 Rib Feet have been subject to cracking early in the life of the A/C. KDC were contracted
to perform FDT Analysis to certify both the retro-fit and series modifications.
KDC provide method development and certification analysis for:
- Retro-fit solution for in-service and in-production A380s (≈120 A/C)
- The new serial design solution for future A380s (≈MSN120+)
The structural configuration of the wing does not permit a retro-fit solution at all locations. Where this occurs, Ferchau/KDC analysis justifies the enhanced inspection regimes required to ensure continued certification of in-service aircraft.
