Care and handling of borescope equipment( Visual )

4 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic care and use of borescope equipment for inspecting the internal passages of turbine engines. The major components of both flexible and rigid borescopes are shown including the light sources, positioning clamps, and the precision optical telescope. This video demonstrates the assembly of components, how it is used and inserted into the engine, conditions such as heat, vibration, and radiation which will damage he equipment and especially the fiber optic components, cleaning the components, and proper storage
Turbine rotor material design( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Premium grade titanium alloys are used for fan and compressor rotors and disks in aircraft turbine engines. Occasional upsets during processing can result in the formation of metallurgical anomalies referred to as hard alpha (HA). Although rare, low-cycle fatigue cracks initiated by HA have led to uncontained engine failures that resulted in fatal accidents such as the incident at Sioux City, Iowa, in 1989. In a report issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) after the accident at Sioux City, it was recommended that a damage tolerance approach be implemented to explicitly address HA anomalies, with the objective of enhancing conventional rotor life management methodology. The probabilistic, damage tolerance code developed in this program for low-cycle fatigue of titanium rotors/disks is intended to supplement, not replace, the current safe-life design. The code is called Design Assessment of Reliability With INspection (DARWIN) and was developed in collaboration with AlliedSignal Engines, General Electric Aircraft Engines, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce Allison. DARWIN integrates finite element stress analysis, fracture mechanics analysis, nondestructive inspection simulation, and probabilistic analysis to assess the risk of rotor fracture. Supplementary tasks performed in this program in support of code implementation included the generation of fatigue crack growth data for Ti-64, Ti-6242, and Ti-17beta in high vacuum; determination of the crack initiation behavior of artificial and natural HA defects embedded in plates of Ti-64; and development of a forging microcode to predict the movement, shape and orientation of HA anomalies during processing from ingot to billet, and from billet to a disk forging
Aerodynamic and acoustic tests of duct-buring turbofan exhaust nozzles by Hilary Kozlowski( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The static aerodynamic and acoustic characteristics of duct-burning turbofan (DBTF) exhaust nozzles are established. Scale models, having a total area equivalent to a 0.127 m diameter convergent nozzle, simulating unsuppressed coannular nozzles and mechanically suppressed nozzles with and without ejectors (hardwall and acoustically treated) were tested in a quiescent environment. The ratio of fan to primary area was varied from 0.75 to 1.2. Far field acoustic data, perceived noise levels, and thrust measurements were obtained for 417 test conditions. Pressure ratios were varied from 1.3 to 4.1 in the fan stream and from 1.53 to 2.5 in the primary stream. Total temperature varied from 395 to 1090 K in both streams. Jet noise reductions relative to synthesized prediction from 8 PNdB (with the unsuppressed coannular nozzle) to 15 PNdB (with a mechanically suppressed configuration) were observed at conditions typical of engines being considered under the Advanced Supersonic Technology program. The inherent suppression characteristic of the unsuppressed coannular nozzle is related to the rapid mixing in the jet wake caused by the velocity profiles associated with the DBTF. Since this can be achieved without a mechanical suppressor, significant reductions in aircraft weight or noise footprint can be realized

Transducer variability study by Jon Hiram Friedl( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goals of this study was 1) to develop a set of portable measurement protocols that could be readily be applied at different installations to quantify key operating characteristics of phased array transducers, and 2) to use those protocols to assess the differences in characteristics of nominally identical transducers

The Aircraft engine and its operation; installation engineering, April, 1946 by United Aircraft Corporation( Book )

3 editions published between 1946 and 1955 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first part of the book is devoted to a description of the basic engine sections and "systems" which together make up the powerplant, and discusses them in relation to the different instruments and controls by means of which the pilot regulates the performance of his engine. The second part deals with the fundamental concepts of power and its measurement, bmep, and ratings, with particular references to the principles of engine operation. The last part of the book consists of a set of general operating instructions in which the material treated in the first two parts is applied to the specific problems of engine operation encountered in flight and on the ground"--Page 5
