I was wondering weather anyone could help me with a problem I have. I been asked to comment on the implications of creep and fatigue in a Rudder control cable. I think it could be both but i'm a bit unsure because the decription I have of fatigue is fatigue is caused by a number of things such as, atmospheric turbulence, the transfer of weight between undercarriage and wing or rotors on take off and landing, manoeuvring and taxing on the ground and manoeuvring during flight. I know there is a transfer of weight when the rudder is moved so does that mean it will suffer from fatigue? and creep well the decription i have is creep is caused by a static or dead load applied to a material or component over a period of time. Is the load on the rudder a staci or dead load. Please could someone help.
