Sonix: Aircraft Rapid decompression Analysis
One of the best presentation of the aircraft rapid decompression can be found in the ASM International publication of J.D. Pratt.
Rapid pressure loss can occur for a variety of reasons, including structural failure of the fuselage, loss of a window, or failure of a cargo door. Engine failures have been known to result in the puncture of pressurized fuselages by broken turbine blades. Regardless of the origin, the fuselage air mass requires time to move through passageways and out of the breach.
This results in an unequal pressure distribution immediately following the event, which can cause further damage to the aircraft and increase the likelihood of injury to its occupants.
Regulation 14 CFR Part 25.365 (FAR 25.365) requires that passenger aircraft be designed to withstand not only the working loads but the effects of a rapid decompression. […]
The aim of an Aircraft Rapid Decompression Analysis is thus to provide the differential pressures acting on the Aircraft internal partitions.

SONIX, the numeric‘s decompression software, offers a reliable, reactive and affordable way to perform a rapid aircraft decompression analysis.
Besides the regular decompression analysis giving delta pressure, and compared to existing competitors, our software features:
- complete and detailed output envelopes
- annotated plots value vs. time
- Aircraft layout at given instant showing A/C status snapshot.
- Sensitivity analysis to support the design phase by giving design trends
- Dynamical behaviour for hinged and translating decompression features
- And much more…
Do not hesitate to contact us for further details.
Online Solution for your company: ESonix
We provide quality customized services using Sonix, but we also built an web interface that wraps sonix and came up in 2015 with the first online aircraft decompression software:
Dedicated trainings for explosive decompression
numeric-GmbH provides trainings dedicated to Rapid and Explosive decompression in general, and to ESonix in particular.
An list of the proposed trainings is available here.
Because decompression is an important activity, we have a dedicated blog section. Check it out!
