Commuter aircraft video landing parameter surveys, summary report : London City Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, and Atlantic City International Airport by Thomas DeFiore( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) William J. Hughes Technical Center is conducting a series of video landing parameter surveys at high-activity commercial airports. The intent of this research is to develop a better understanding of typical landing contact conditions for a wide variety of aircraft. This information is used to assess the validity of current aircraft certification criteria. This report documents survey results for commuter aircraft at London City Airport (LCY), Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), and Atlantic City International Airport (ACY). The results from this survey and the prior landing parameter surveys at JFK, DCA, and HNL differ substantially from aircraft survey results reported 35 years ago during the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) surveys

Study of side load factor during aircraft ground operations( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of this study was to support the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Operational Loads Monitoring Research Program by developing new and improved methods and criteria for processing and presenting commercial transport airplane ground loads usage data. The scope of activities performed involved (1) defining the service-related factors that affect the operational life of commercial aircraft; (2) designing an efficient software system to reduce, store, and process large quantities of optical quick access recorder data; and (3) reducing, analyzing, and providing processed data in statistical formats that will enable the FAA to reassess existing certification criteria. Equally important, these new data will also enable the FAA, the aircraft manufacturers, and the airlines to better understand and control those factors that influence the structural integrity of commercial transport aircraft. The data presented in this report will provide the user with information comparing the side load factors encountered during ground maneuvers for airplane models B-747-400, B-767-200, B-737-400, CRJ100, and A320 in actual operational usage. The University of Dayton Research Institute database used for this report consisted of 95,862 flight hours for the B-747-400; 44,990 flight hours for the B-767-200; 89,269 flight hours for the B-737-400; 463 flight hours for the CRJ100; and 30,817 flight hours for the A320
Development and validation of an aircraft seat cushion component test by S. J Hooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A component test method was developed and validated to certify replacement bottom seat cushions for 16-g aircraft seats that were originally certified to the requirements of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 25.562 or Technical Standard Order C127a. The methodology established criteria to evaluate replacement cushions, which ensures an equivalent or improved level of safety to the cushions originally certified on these seats. The component test was derived from American Society for Testing and Materials standard test method D 3574-03 and generates load-deflection data for a cylindrical test specimen. The component test method was validated, using test results produced during full-scale 14-g sled tests performed at the Federal Aviation Administration Civil Aerospace Medical Institute
Statistical data for the Boeing-747-400 aircraft in commercial operations by Todd R Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), supported by the University of Dayton, conducts research on the structural integrity requirements for the U.S. commercial transport airplane fleet. The primary objective of this research is to support the FAA airborne data monitoring systems research program by developing new and improved methods and criteria for processing and presenting large commercial transport airplane flight and ground loads usage data. The scope of activities performed involved (1) defining the service-related factors that affect the operational life of commercial aircraft; (2) designing an efficient software system to reduce, store, and process large quantities of optical quick-access recorder data; and (3) providing processed data in formats that will enable the FAA to reassess existing certification criteria. Equally important, these new data will also enable the FAA, the aircraft manufacturers, and the airlines to better understand and control those factors that influence the structural integrity of commercial transport aircraft. Presented herein are analyses and statistical summaries of the data collected from 11,066 flights representing 95,883 flight hours from Boeing 747-400 aircraft during operational usage recorded by a single airline. The flight loads data include statistical information on accelerations, speeds, altitudes, flight duration and distance, gross weights, speed brake cycles, thrust reverser usage, and gust velocities encountered
The temperature distribution within solid metal cylinders subjected to a standard aircraft engine fire by John W Reinhardt( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides temperature data that could be used to establish the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) loss of candidate engine mount materials after been exposed to a standard flame for 5 and 15 minutes. The materials tested included 4130 steel (baseline),15-5 PH steel, titanium 6A1-4V, Inconel 718, and aluminum 7075. These materials were instrumented internally with thermocouples and exposed to the standard flame. MIL-Handbook-5H provides some data with regards to the UTS loss of these materials while heated, but additional strength tests must be conducted to account for the higher temperatures experienced by these materials while exposed to the standard fire

Experimental investigation of ice accretion effects on a swept wing( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experimental investigation was conducted to study the effects of 2-, 5-, 10-, and 22.5-min ice accretions on the aerodynamic performance of a swept finite wing. The ice shapes tested included castings of ice accretions obtained from icing tests at the NASA Glenn Icing Research Tunnel (IRT) and simulated ice shapes obtained with the LEWICE 2.0 ice accretion code. The conditions used for the icing tests were selected to provide five glaze ice shapes with complete and incomplete scallop features and a small rime ice shape
115 vac single-phase arc-vault circuit breaker flight test by Robert Pappas( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 1999, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Naval Air Systems Command, and the Office of Naval Research initiated a joint research and development program aimed at the development of arc-fault circuit breakers (AFCB) suitable for the protection of aircraft electrical wiring. Two independent contracts for the development of 115 Vac single-phase AFCBs were awarded; one to the Eaton Aerospace Company and one to the Hendry Telephone Company. This report describes the flight test effort for evaluating the performance of the developmental AFCBs. In total, the flight test effort was comprised of 118.9 hours flight time during which 929.7 operational hours of AFCB data were collected. All flight hours were accumulated using normal aircraft operational profiles
