This specification defines the requirements for a threaded rigid coupling assembly, which utilizes ferrule type machined tube end fittings, to join tubing and components in aircraft fuel, vent, and other systems. This coupling assembly is designed for use from −65 to 200 °F and at 125 psig operating pressure.
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies test methods for tube-fitting assemblies used in aircraft fluid systems in the following pressure classes: B (1500 psi or 10500 kPa), D (3000 psi or 21000 kPa), E (4000 psi or 28000 kPa), and J (5000 psi or 35000 kPa) and in temperature types I (-65 to 160 °F or -55 to 70 °C), II (-65 to 275 °F or -55 to 135 °C), and III (-65 to 400 °F or -55 to 200 °C) of AS2001. This document applies each time that it is referred to in a procurement specification or other definition document. Fluids and materials used for the tests are listed in Section 2.
This recommended practice establishes the requirements and procedures for Barkhausen Noise (BN) inspection of ferromagnetic steel components. Applications of the method are listed below in 1.2 through 1.5.
The present document addresses gas and hydraulic fluid servicing required on commercial and military aircraft landing gears, for both single and dual chamber (also known as dual stage and two stage) shock struts. This document should be considered as landing gear industry recommended practice but in no way is meant to supersede the shock strut OEM’s published procedures.
This procurement specification covers retaining rings of the spiral wound type with uniform rectangular cross-section, made of a corrosion and heat resistant age hardenable iron base alloy of the type identified under the Unified Numbering System as UNS S66286, work strengthened and heat treated to a tensile strength of 185 to 240 ksi at room temperature.
This Technical Report has been declared “CANCELLED” as of November 2017. By this action, this document will remain listed in the respective index, if applicable. Cancelled Technical Reports are available from SAE.
The purpose of this report is to outline types of in-service heat damage that have been observed in high strength steel landing gear components, with an emphasis on a particular type that is referred to as “Ladder Cracking” which can develop in landing gear shock struts. The report discusses how ladder cracking can be detected visually and evaluated by non-destructive inspection methods, and how it can be repaired at overhaul with the prior approval of the Original Equipment Manufacturer. This report also describes the use of a bearing material that has resolved this problem without introducing other problems. Examples of other types of service induced heat damage are also discussed.
This document includes requirements of installations of adequate landing and taxiing lighting systems in aircraft of the following categories: a Single engine personal and/or liaison type b Light twin engine c Large multiengine propeller d Large multiengine turbojet/turbofan e Military high-performance fighter and attack f Helicopter This document will cover general requirements and recommended practices for all types of landing and taxi lights. More specific recommendations for LED lights in particular can be found in ARP6402.
