Designed to record various electronic instructions sent between an aircraft and its parts, flight data recorders (FDR), commonly referred to as ‘black boxes,’ are capable of retaining data received from various areas of an aircraft. Typically coupled with a cockpit voice recorder (CVR), flight data recorders and their combined components are vital tools for investigating any incidents or accidents that have occured to or on a particular aircraft. Painted a vibrant orange color for ease of identification, flight data recorders and their implementation in aircraft are necessary for obtaining valuable insight on how an aviation accident or incident occurred.
A flywheel is a common machine component, capable of storing rotational energy for later use. When the machine reaches a point where the supply power is inefficient for operations, the flywheel will release its stored energy. Within a standard internal combustion engine, for example, the fluctuating torque produced by the crankshaft during a complete cycle will cause the shaft to have a change in its angular velocity. Through the implementation of a flywheel, inertia mass is provided at the end of the shaft so that the torque will become more balanced.
When an aircraft is transporting individuals over long distances, it is important that passengers have access to facilities such as lavatories and aircraft galleys for the means of providing a comfortable experience for all. In order for passengers and crew members to take advantage of the restrooms, coffee and tea makers, sinks, and other facilities and equipment of an aircraft, water must be managed and supplied to each. In this blog, we will discuss the water and waste system of aircraft, allowing you to better understand how potable water is supplied to facilities and how wastewater is removed and stored during a flight operation.
Honeycomb cores first appeared on aircraft in the 1940s when they were used to reduce weight and increase payload & flight distance. They were integrated into aircraft designs as a replacement for the much heavier conventional sheet and stringer or beam support approach. Since their introduction, honeycomb cores have become a basic structural concept throughout the aerospace industry. In the 21st century, nearly every commercial and military aircraft depends on honeycomb cores for their integrity and reliability. There are many substrate materials used in honeycombs, and honeycomb cores can have densities as low as 16 kg/m3 (kilograms per cubic meter).
Controlling the pressure rating is often important in ensuring a system can function properly. The required pressure rating of different systems will vary based on the system type and the industry or application it is used in. For example, the pressure requirements of an aircraft will differ greatly from those of an automobile engine. To maintain pressure, many systems use a pressure gauge, which can be set to and maintain a desired pressure. In this blog, we will discuss the six most common types of pressure gauges.
Keeping a jet engine running as efficiently as possible is critical. An efficient engine is safer, works better, and uses less fuel to run. As such, operators are always looking for ways to maximize the efficiency of their jet engine. One such way is compressor cleaning.
If you’ve been on an airplane and were lucky enough to get a window seat, you have probably looked at the window and asked yourself a few questions about it. For example, you may have wondered how aircraft windows work, what they are made of, and what that small hole at the window’s base is. In this blog, we will answer all three of those questions.
When investing in drone technology for either personal use or for a specific organization or industry, it can be useful to procure various accessories. As one of the most essential accessories for drone aircraft, anti-collision lights serve to increase flight safety and ensure compliance with drone flight laws. As there are various types of lighting for drones, understanding which ones are the most useful and how to meet flight requirements is crucial for any drone aircraft owner or operator.
Gears are an imperative part of many motors and machines, where they do things like increase torque output by providing gear reduction and alter the direction of rotation like in automotive vehicles. They are used for far more applications than just these two, and therefore come in many different types. The most common gear types are spur, helical, bevel, rack, and worm. In this blog we will discuss each type and how they differ from one another.
A gear is a device made of toothed wheels that transfer mechanical power between two elements. They are found throughout machines used for industrial processes, such as production lines in drive systems. However, they are also used in a wide range of sectors such as mining, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and more. This blog will focus specifically on a certain type of gear: the bevel gear.
