This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) establishes the specifications and descriptions of the critical components and operational guidelines for the standard hydraulic impulse machine for testing hydraulic hose assemblies, tubing, coils, fittings and similar fluid system components.
This revision to the AIR1228 provides a description of a system that meets the requirements for specifications including: AS603, AS4265, and ARP1383. This impulse system utilizes closed loop servo control with specifically generated command signal waveforms.
Data accuracy and integrity are emphasized in this revision. Knowing the uncertainty of the pressure measurement is important whether using a resonator tube system, as described in the original release of this document, or a closed-loop systems as described in this release. The accuracy of the data measurement system and consistency of the pressure waveform are fundamental to test validity, regardless of the system type. This is discussed in more detail in Section 5.
The standard impulse test system is established for the following purposes:
As referee in the event of conflicting data from two or more nonstandard impulse machines. Such a referee system might be built by an impartial testing activity.
A design guide for future test systems being built by manufacturers and users, or the upgrading of present systems.
A design guide for higher pressure test systems or special purpose machines being designed.
It is not the intention of this document to obsolete present resonator type machines. The specification for the resonator type machine is available in the original release of this document.
A simple block diagram of the revised system is shown in Figure 1.
The simplified block diagram shown in Figure 1 does not use a resonator tube as in the original release of the specification. To eliminate undesired resonances the hydraulic system is as closely coupled as possible. In this design, the pressure waveform is created in closed loop proportional control via the command signal generated by the test controller system.
If the test controller is a computer with an impulse specific software application, it is possible to control all parameters of the specified waveform, within the capabilities of the hydraulic system. These parameters include things such as rise rate, damping, secondary oscillation amplitude, etc. In a resonator tube system, it is difficult to make adjustments to these parameters.
AIR1228A has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE five-year review policy.

This Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining standards for design, test, and procurement of fluid systems part standards to improve reliability and economy. Their primary focus is on AS standards development and support of military standards. The Committee also develops ISO standards in a Subcommittee Advisory Group (SCAG) to ISO/TC 20/SC 10, and SAE-MA derivatives thereof.Structure: SAE G-3 -- Parent committee SAE G-3A -- Aerospace Couplings Subcommittee SAE G-3B -- Aerospace Fittings Subcommittee SAE G-3D -- Aerospace Hose Subcommittee SAE G-3E - Aerospace Tubing Assemblies Subcommittee U.S. SCAG to ISO/TC 20/SC 10 -- ISO standards Major projects: Support of Military Standards Reform Support of military standard conversions to MIL-PERF and MIL-DTL. Development of AS replacements for military standards designated for conversion. Establish document to list G-3 accepted replacements for replaced part standards and military back-up specifications. Development of PRI QML/QPL Development of Performance Review Institute (PRI) process for approval and surveillance of manufacturers (Qualified Manufacturer List, QML) and for approval of standard parts as qualified for use (Qualified Parts List, QPL). Development of ISO Standards, Imperial Units ISO/TC 20/SC 10 standards have typically been developed in SI units. The ISO has approved development of inch-based ISO standards to support commercial aviation. Basic design, test, and procurement specifications will be selected from military standards that are to be converted to Non-Government standard (NGS) and developed as ISO standards.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
