THIS presentation on fastening of composite structures includes material characteristics, hole generation parameters and methods, types of fasteners available and automation equipment and approaches.
DESIGNERS in the aerospace, engine and component industries are wholly aware of the need to designin wire thread inserts in order to enhance the long term strength and reliability of tapped holes in soft metals, or those unable to meet the product's stringent inservice conditions.
EPOXY void fillers are low density materials capable of resisting compressive loads. With densities of from 0.45 to 0.75 depending on the grade they do not offer a weight penalty in the structure. Void fillers are used in both structural and nonstructural applications in aircraft to reinforce...
The lead engine on the Boeing 757 aircraft is the RollsRoyce RB211535. The transient operation of this engine is largely dependent on the operation of its multiple bleed valves which are located at several different stages of the Intermediate and High Pressure Compressor spools.
THE reliability of ICs and other semiconductors is a subject which continues to challenge both manufacturers and users. High specification markets such as the Avionics Sector, lead the user demand for a greater degree of assurance that the products they install demonstrate a longer and more...
WHEN an aircraft has to withstand gound temperatures hot enough to fry an egg on its wing and then, 30 minutes later, fly at 41,000 ft in conditions of minus 60, the choice of exterior paintwork is obviously a prime factor.
WHEN the Airbus Industrie A320 makes its first flight next year it will be equipped with two CFM 565A1 turbofans of 25,000 lb thrust each. This engine is scheduled for certification in August, 1987 and will enter service in the A320 early in 1988. Following closely is the International Aero...
PRELIMINARY test data from static tests of the Propfan Test Assessment PTA propulsion system indicate to NASA and aerospace industry engineers that the system works as it's supposed to work and as it was designed to work.
THE Garrett Corporation, Los Angelesbased unit of AlliedSignal Inc., is marking its 50th anniversary during 1986.
FOREMOST among designers and manufacturers of ejection seats is the MartinBaker company which had an impressive display at Farnborough showing how their expertise had, over the years, saved close on 5,500 aircrew lives and with the incorporation of even more advanced equipment, will given flying...
