Subject: Is 217 Obsolete
I have came across several articles stating that 217F is longer being used to the same extent for theoretical analysis purposes. If this the case what will replace it? How are engineers now calculating reliability figures? If there is no in-service/field data available how do we now calculate a realistic failure rate? I would be grateful for any pointers in this matter. Thanks in Advance.
