This SAE Aerospace Information Report is to supplement content from ARP4163 pertaining to error analysis on the use of multiple drive adapter applications, on both vertical and horizontal balance machines. This new Aerospace Information Report will serve as a practical resource that offers guidance to the Machine Operator and Process Engineer.
The scope of this Aerospace Information Report includes practical applications; theory; process management, audit, and control recommendations; recommended validation intervals; verification and validation; file setup parameters; additional considerations; and process documentation.
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.
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) will provide general guidelines and procedures for servicing and maintaining oxygen systems. Such methods and procedures may be applied to gaseous, liquid, chemical and portable oxygen systems. These guidelines and recommendations will be provided to engineering and maintenance personnel for airlines, modification centers and third party maintenance contractors, to be used while performing maintenance on oxygen systems and components.
The goal of this new document is to provide criteria for managing, auditing, and controlling the use of rotating balancing tooling and associated support tools. A variety of subjects will be addressed including serialization and marking requirements, critical inspection criteria, performance tracking through tooling compensation trend analysis, handling of gage standards (rotor simulators, master blades, dummy blades, etc.), recommendations for periodic and preventive maintenance intervals, test recommendations to evaluate rotating tooling performance, requirements for traceable measures (such as torques, runouts, eccentricity, etc.), repeatability characterization, and criteria for return to service.
This method evaluates elastomer compatibility by weight and volume changes of elastomer specimens in contact with synthetic turbine oils at moderate temperatures (100 to 160 C) and long durations (at least 1800 hours).
The scope of this document is to provide recommended practices for the development and implememtation of training programs for the issuance of a Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL). The recommended practices contained within this documernt are intended primarily for the guidance of passenger and cargo air carriers, and training providers.
This method is designed to evaluate the changes in the chemical and physical properties of gas turbine engine lubricants subjected to elevated temperaures in the presence of air. The results are primarily applicable to low-oil-consumption gas turbine engines which do not experience regular additions of top-off oil. This is the initial documentation of this procedure and is intended to harmonize test procedures and report. The industry will need to conduct a round robin based on this procedure to develop precision statements.
The scope of this document is to provide recommended practices for the development and implementation of competency-based training programs for air carrier pilots. The recommended practices contained within this document are intended primarily for the guidance of passenger and cargo air carriers, and training providers.
The scope of this document is to provide those recommended practices considered essential for all air carrier first officer initial training programs. The recommended practices contained within this document are intended primarily for the guidance of passenger and cargo air carriers, and training providers. This document is also intended to guide those responsible for rule making and the provision of oversight of organizations involved in air carrier first officer initial training programs. Any professional pilot training organization may benefit from a review of the recommendations contained in this document.
Methods will be developed to characterize In Flight Entertainment (IFE) component impact performance separate from seat design. These methods will address both initial seat head impact criterion (HIC) testing and subsequent IFE component changes. Methods will evaluate head blunt trauma, post-impact sharp edges, and egress impediment. Criteria development will involve defining test methods, test parameters, measurements, and acceptance criteria. Particular emphasis on evaluating IFE changes that require coordination and evaluation per SAE ARP 6448, Appendix B.
Recommendations for EHA Pump and Motor sizing based on considerations for various actuator performance requirements, including no-load speed, breakout torque, low temperature, stiffness, dynamic response, maximum pressure-velocity capability, and other conditions.
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice provides recommendations for: the audit process in general; a list of specific areas of attention to be audited; maintaining the test facility in such a manner that it meets audit requirements.
An oil sample is placed into an open top glass vial which is then inserted into a stainless steel pressure vessel. The vessel is then sealed, pressurized, and placed into a heated aluminum block bath for 18 hours. At the end of the 18 hour time period, the vessel is removed from the heat source and allowed to cool to room temperature at which time the contents of the vial are filtered and the total sediment is reported as milligrams of sediment per 20 mL of oil.
Aviation oils provide thin lubricating films between highly stressed bearing, gear and other lubricated contacts. The stresses and shear rates cause rapid rheological changes in the oil which affect the traction (friction) between the surfaces. Thin film dynamic forces are associated with the molecular structure of the oil provided by the oil supplier. Traction force divided by the normal load (i.e. traction coefficient) can be viewed as a fundamental property of aviation oil. Its value is a function of stress, temperature and shear rate. Appropriate measurements are made under dynamic conditions to characterize aviation oil products for engineering design purposes and service performance prediction.
This document describes technical approaches that can be applied to show that proposed oxygen equipment and systems achieve suitable oxygenation in users. These approaches can be used to demonstrate that items under test meet performance criteria sufficient to justify certification for use in aircraft applications.
