External Hydraulic Fluid Leakage Definition for Landing Gear Shock Absorbers

2018-07-25
CURRENT
ARP6408
The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to provide a practical definition of external hydraulic fluid leakage exhibited by landing gear shock absorbers/struts. The definition will outline normal (acceptable weepage) and excessive leakage (unacceptable leakage) of shock absorbers/struts that is measurable. The definition of leakage is applicable to new gear assemblies, refurbished/remanufactured (overhauled) shock absorbers/struts, leakage of shock absorbers/struts encountered during acceptance flights, newly delivered and in-service aircraft. This ARP is intended to provide guidelines for acceptable leakage of landing gear shock absorbers/struts between the ambient temperatures of -65 °F (-54 °C) and 130 °F (54 °C) and to outline the procedure for measuring such leakage. The specific limits that are applied to any particular aircraft shall be adjusted by the aircraft manufacturer before inclusion in the applicable maintenance manual.

AIR7491
Increased use of advanced composite structural materials on aircraft has resulted in the need to address the more demanding quality and non-destructive testing procedures. Accordingly, increased utilization of solid laminate composites is driving changes to airline NDT training requirements and greater emphasis on the application of accurate NDT methods. Modules, including an introduction to composite materials, composite NDI theory and practice, special cases and lessons learned, have been produced in addition to various hands-on NDT exercises. A set of proficiency specimens containing realistic composite structures and representative damage has been designed in order to reinforce teaching points of the course and “test” inspector’s proficiency. Extensive details of the course modules, hand-on exercises and the proficiency specimens are all presented in this report.

Insulation Sleeving, Electrical, Heat Shrinkable, General Specification For

2018-07-24
WIP
AS23053A
This specification establishes the requirements for various types and colors of electrical insulating sleeving that will shrink to a predetermined size upon the application of heat. This specification includes provisions for demonstrating compliance with qualification requirements (see Section 4 and 7.3), in process inspection, and statistical process control inspections (see 4.4). The continuous operating temperature ranges for the sleeving classes covered by this specification are from -112 to +482 °F (-80 to +250 °C). The continuous operating temperature range for each sleeving class is given in the applicable detail specification.
