One expression of the destructive toll is a metric called wing root fatigue life expended (WRFLE), and it is calculated through a complicated engineering analysis that determines each aircraft's remaining structural integrity at the critical wing attach points.

To ensure that the aircraft do not exceed the fatigue life limits during service, the SAFE Program tracks individual aircraft fatigue life for all aircraft in terms of a standard quantifiable metric, fatigue life expended (FLE).
To minimize the impact of Fatigue Life Expended (FLE), the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) developed the ESSI program and identified primary replacement structural components to specifically address high fatigue failure areas discovered during recent P-3 service life fatigue testing.
