Gas Turbine Engine Performance Presentation and Nomenclature For Object-Oriented Computer Programs

2018-05-07
CURRENT
ARP5571C
This document provides recommendations for several aspects of air-breathing gas turbine engine performance modeling using object-oriented programming systems. Nomenclature, application program interface, and user interface are addressed with the emphasis on nomenclature. The Numerical Propulsion System Simulation (NPSS) modeling environment is frequently used in this document as an archetype. Many of the recommendations for standards are derived from NPSS standards. NPSS was chosen because it is an available product. The practices recommended herein may be applied to other object-oriented systems. While this document applies broadly to any gas turbine engine, the great majority of engine performance computer programs have historically been written for aircraft propulsion systems. Aircraft and propulsion terminology and examples appear throughout.

Guidelines for Preparing Reliability Assessment Plans for Electronic Engine Controls

2018-05-07
CURRENT
ARP5890B
This document establishes guidelines for a Reliability Assessment Plan (herein also called the Plan), in which Electronic Engine Control manufacturers document their controlled, repeatable processes for assessing reliability of their products. Each Electronic Engine Control manufacturer (the Plan owner) prepares a Plan, which is unique to the Plan owner. This document describes processes that are intended for use in assessing the reliability of Electronic Engine Controls, or subassemblies thereof. The results of such assessments are intended for use as inputs to safety analyses, certification analyses, equipment design decisions, system architecture selection and business decisions such as warranties or maintenance cost guarantees.

Duty Cycle Considerations for Electrohydrostatic Actuators

2018-05-07
CURRENT
ARP6025
This recommended practice provides a method of characterizing Electrohydrostatic Actuator (EHA)/Electrohydrostatic Module (EHM) duty cycles for the following purposes: a To enable the comparison of the severity of different EHA/EHM applications. This allows the use of previously qualified designs without the need for repeat testing. b To define parameters for endurance-test design of EHAs; e.g., a way of executing a life-equivalent test in a shorter duration by increasing the speed of cycles and/or the level of applied loads.
