Jet aircraft of the 1980s may be markedly quieter as a result of new ideas now being developed in a versatile acoustic test facility at General Electric Company of the USA's Research and Development Centre.
This article outlines the procedures being used at Westland Helicopters Limited to establish the fatigue lives of the dynamic and structural components of the Lynx and to demonstrate how an adequate safety level is achieved under the loading sustained by the aircraft. For the newcomer to the...
ALTHOUGH assisted by such agencies as aerodynamic drag and engine reverse thrust, slowing and stopping a modern aircraft on the ground is achieved principally by the use of wheel brakes to generate a horizontal drag force between the tyres and the ground. In the braking process the aircraft...
AS hydraulic systems in modern military and commercial aircraft continue to grow in size and complexity with practically each new aircraft introduced, many aircraft manufacturers are turning to the use of power transfer units to help hold down overall hydraulic system weight and complexity. A...
SINCE aircraft and other devices have used hydraulic systems there has been the need to test these systems. Accurate and troublefree operation is a prerequisite of safety in the air, and as it is said that what goes up must come down the maxim must be applied equally to the controls,...
The onestep precision blasting method of glass bead cleaning, peening and corrosion removal involves impelling micron size spherical glass particles at controlled velocities against a workpiece. The impact of the glass beads on the surface of the object pulverises and removes all forms of...
