This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) contains information on most of the major icing simulation ground facilities. An effort was made to obtain data from as many facilities as possible over a two year time period. The data in this document represents the state of the facilities in calendar year 1996. Facilities are constantly changing and upgrading and, therefore, some facility specifications may change during the life of this report. Of the 27 facilities described in this report, the primary use is split with approximately half for engine testing and half for wind tunnel testing. The facilities are limited to ground facilities and, therefore, icing tankers have not been included.
This specification and a detail pump specification establish the requirements for variable flow hydraulic pumps, for use in aircraft hydraulic systems conforming to and as defined in MIL-H-5440 and MIL-H-8891, as applicable. The general requirements for type I and type II hydraulic systems pumps are specified in MIL-H-8775 and for type III system pumps in MIL-H-8890.
