Bird strike: An experimental, theoretical, and numerical by Reza Hedayati

By Reza Hedayati

What's a poultry strike? Any touch among a relocating motor vehicle (usually an plane) and
an airborne avian creature (usually a chicken or bat) or a gaggle of such avian creatures is
called a poultry strike. The time period is generally increased to incorporate different flora and fauna species
including terrestrial mammals. the results of such touch for a chicken is, after all, usually
fatal. For an plane, notwithstanding, the end result can differ from a blood smear, an indentation
or small gap within the aircraft’s body, colossal harm to an aircraft
component, or perhaps whole plane destruction; this is often frequently attributable to significant
bird moves that disable engines.
A fowl strike can, accordingly, be an important probability to the security of airplane commute.

The aviation accidents and incidents in Brazil are all recorded in the Aeronautical Accident Prevention and Investigation Center’s (CENIPA) database. CENIPA not only uses its data for avian hazard control actions, but also produces statistics information and trend analysis studies (Bastos, 2000). The annual number of reported bird strikes has increased from 235 in 1993 to 587 in 2004. Among the occurrences with identified bird species, black vulture was involved in 58% of bird strikes and Vanellus chillensis was involved in 21% of bird strikes.

8 million monetary loss. This again emphasizes the importance of the implementation of harassment techniques for birds and terrestrials in wildlife management programs. In the period 2000– 2014, in slightly less than half of the filed reports for wildlife strikes with damage or aircraft destruction, the costs are provided. It must also be stated that many reports providing cost estimates were filed before aircraft damage and downtime had been fully assessed, and therefore, it is believed that they severely underestimate the magnitude of the problem (Dolbeer & Seubert, 2009).
