TIME is money. This is the simple premise on which airlines have built up a network of routes girdling the world, yet in spite of the tremendous increase in cruising speed of presentday airliners it takes as long to travel from the centre of London to the centre of Paris as it did forty years...
THE Dunlop Aviation Division first became involved in the protection of aircraft from ice accretion in 1935, when, together with the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, equipment for the distribution of deicing fluids over important control surfaces was produced.
THERMAL protection from the effects of ice built up can be achieved by means of antiicing or de icing. Most aircraft structures are deiced since this consumes considerably less power, but in some cases it is essential that the surface be antiiced, e.g. engine intakes, where ice ingestion to the...
THE simplest definitive description of the electrothermal deicing system postulated by Dunlop is the encapsulation of selected resistors within thermally conductive, but electrically nonconductive, materials.
THE ultimate performance of aircraft electrical ice protection systems is dependent to a large degree upon the design of effective healing elements. After considerable research Dunlop developed their sheared foil element which has proved itself superior in most respects to other elements and is...
THE main purpose of this article is to deal with control system problems encountered with aircraft deicing applications.
MALFUNCTIONS of turboprop, turbojet and turbofan engines can be divided into two groups as follows
HIGH strength high stiffness composite materials offer the engineer a solution to many problems, and are of considerable interest to gas turbine designers. The particular mechanical problems associated with compressor rotor blades become more severe as the blade tip speeds and stage loadings...
THE electronic and electrical systems built into modern aircraft represent not only a very high proportion of the total cost but a major factor in their performance. As these systems become more complex, so greater attention is being focused on new methods used in design and assembly of the...
An important operational feature of the Bristol Siddeley Gnome type H1200 turboshaft helicopter engine, is the way in which it can be used in coupled installations.
