Landing Gear Fatigue Spectrum Development For Part 25 Aircraft

A-5B Gears, Struts and Couplings Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AIR5914
  • Current
Published 2020-02-28 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides guidelines for the development of landing gear fatigue spectra for the purpose of designing and certification testing of Part 25 landing gear. Many of the recommendations herein are generalizations based on data obtained from a wide range of landing gears. The aircraft manufacturer or the landing gear supplier is encouraged to use data more specific to their particular undercarriage whenever possible.

Maintenance of Pitot-Static Systems of Transport Aircraft

A-4 Aircraft Instruments Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AIR975B
  • Current
Published 2020-02-20 by SAE International in United States
In efforts to increase the accuracy and reliability of altimetry, speed measurement and other aspects of air data, a great deal of attention and money have been expended on new and refined pressure transducing and computing systems and on the standards by which they are calibrated. So much progress has been made in this that the limiting factor is, or may soon be, the sensing and transmitting in the aircraft of the pressures to be transduced. Until the appearance of References 1-13 and 18 there was little guidance available on the maintenance of pitot and static systems. This report presents what information is available, suggests limits, and lists the principal original papers on the subject.

Robots Assemble Large Structures from Little Pieces

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-36001
Published 2020-02-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Today's commercial aircraft are typically manufactured in sections and often in different locations — wings at one factory, fuselage sections at another, tail components somewhere else — and then flown to a central plant in huge cargo planes for final assembly. If the entire plane could be built out of a large array of tiny identical pieces, all put together by an army of tiny robots, costs in manpower and transportation could be slashed.

Halocarbon Clean Agent Hand-Held Fire Extinguisher

S-9B Cabin Interiors and Furnishings Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AS6271A
  • Current
Published 2020-01-30 by SAE International in United States
This AS establishes minimum requirements for halocarbon clean agent hand-held fire extinguishers carried aboard civil aircraft. The requirements include: design (cylinder, valve, gauge, mounting equipment), performance (firefighting effectiveness - hidden fire test, discharge test, type, etc.), environmental (ozone depleting/global warming potential, atmospheric life span), and occupant safety concerns (toxicology - seat fire test).

Electrical Connectors for Aerospae, Shipboard, Ground Vehicles and Associated Equipment

AE-8C1 Connectors Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • ARP1308D
  • Current
Published 2020-01-21 by SAE International in United States
The intent of this ARP is to identify electrical connectors maintained by the AE-8C1 Committee, to provide their general application characteristics, associated configuration options, and recommendations for new design (see 6.1.1), repair, and retrofit purposes (see 6.1). It is acknowledged the connectors listed herein will not completely satisfy all mobility vehicle and equipment requirements, but optimization of the use of these components will facilitate standardization in the form of maximum utilization of a minimum variety of connectors. This ARP only pertains to AS connector standards. See MIL-STD-1353 for U.S. military specification connector information.

Magnesium Alloys in Aircraft Seats - Developments in Magnesium Alloy Flammability Testing

Aircraft SEAT Committee
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AIR6160A
  • Current
Published 2020-01-09 by SAE International in United States
This document provides informational background, rationale and a technical case to allow consideration of the removal of the magnesium alloy restriction in aircraft seat construction as contained in AS8049B. The foundation of this argument is flammability characterization work performed by the FAA at the William J. Hughes Technical Center (FAATC), Fire Safety Branch in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA. The rationale and detailed testing results are presented along with flammability reports that have concluded that the use of specific types of magnesium alloys in aircraft seat construction does not increase the hazard level potential in the passenger cabin in a post-crash fire scenario. Further, the FAA has developed a lab scale test method, reference DOT/FAA/TC-13/52, to be used as a certification test, or method of compliance (MOC) to allow acceptability of the use of magnesium in the governing TSO-C127 and TSO-C39C. Other flammability studies are also cited in the AIR document to substantiate the FAA findings.
