The development of safety systems for aircraft is currently benefiting from technology and skills originally proven in automotive applications. This article considers testing and technology for airliner passenger seating, civil and military helicopter crew safety and the possible use of airbags.
In recent years the significant reliability goals achieved with aeroengines have underlined the progress made in all areas of design and production. These features are prominent in the RollsRoyce series of turbofans in which integrity is guaranteed through the progressive implementation of...
The aircraft manufacturing industry places a high priority on safety and spends many billions of pounds in developing and testing new military and civil aircraft to the highest safety standards.
Flying has long been considered a safe means of travel, although 100 per cent safety can never be guaranteed. The Defence Research Agency's DRA's Spectrometric Oils Analysis Programme, SOAP, helps to ensure aircraft stay faultfree for as long as possible by providing an accurate, rapid...
Like most modern manufacturing processes, tube bending and inspection is evolving from its black art origins. Tube processing has progressed through the use of manual and semiautomatic machinery, mylar templates, setup blocks, master samples and attribute gauges. Current production and quality...
The planning, design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of systems inside the aircraft and aerospace industries can generate literally millions of documents ranging from drawings and associated information, to memos, notes, and informal records on a variety of media, both electronic and...
When stainless steel pipes and tubes, hereafter referred to only as pipes, and some made of other materials such as chrome moly carbon steel, copper nickel, titanium, etc. are welded together or to fittings, it is desirable to purge the oxygen out of the inside of the material near the weld zone...
Direct savings from a shopfloor data capture system installed across three sites at gas turbine engineers CUK Ltd will result in a financial payback of under nine months. In addition, indirect benefits include improved product costings, quality management and customer service, and greater...
How will the aviation and aerospace industry make its new alliances a viable and practical proposition Could BS EN ISO 9000 provide a muchneeded link between companies operating vastly different management systems
As part of an ongoing development programme, the Pilatus Aircraft Company of Switzerland has commissioned Avro International Aerospace, a division of British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Limited, to perform thermal imaging measurements on the interior and exterior of its aircraft.
