Some discussion of the acoustic fatigue problem of aircraft structures is given along with data pertaining to the acoustic inputs from some powerplants in common use. Comparisons are given for results of some fatigue tests of flat panels and cantilever beams exposed to both random- and discrete-type inputs.
