SwRI evaluates commercial aircraft designs for very light jets.

Structural analysis of aging military aircraft is one activity that Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has been involved in for more than 25 years. In 2006, we expanded our program to full-scale static and fatigue certification evaluation of commercial aircraft designs for very light jets.


Engineers perform Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) design certification evaluations for this new class of jet, and we will continue fatigue evaluations to extend its certification for additional operating conditions.
