Formal Proof Techniques

After metallurgical examination of the two fan
blade fractures suffered by G-BNNL and G-OBMG..
it became clear that there was a generic
problem affecting the -3C-1 variant of the
CFM56... The position of the fracture origin
was in the region of the blade where the
highest vibratory stresses were expected

Kegworth, Leicestershire on January 8th 1989.
