There have been flight accidents which involved structural failure after fast decompression of the cabin, like BOAC Flight 781.
I'm thinking about how decompression can destabilize or destroy the structure of a fuselage;
I would think that a hole pinched into the cabin wall of 1 cm diameter will just cause slow decompression over minutes.
I got the impression that creating a larger hole, like removing a door, can potentially cause severe failure of the fuselage in other places than the hole.
If that is the case: what makes a hole large enough to be dangerous?
And what is the mechanism making a large hole dangerous?
Or is it that the structural failure comes first, and decompression is just a salient symptom of it?
