By Roy Langton, Chuck Clark, Martin Hewitt, Lonnie Richards

All elements of gas items and platforms together with gasoline dealing with, volume gauging and administration capabilities for either advertisement (civil) and armed forces purposes.

The gas platforms on board smooth airplane are multi-functional, absolutely built-in complicated networks. they're designed to supply a formal and trustworthy administration of gas assets all through all stages of operation, even though alterations in altitude or pace, in addition to to observe method performance and propose the flight staff of any operational anomalies that can improve.

  • Collates jointly a wealth of knowledge on gas approach layout that's at present disseminated through the literature.
  • Authored through prime specialists from Airbus and Parker Aerospace.
  • Includes chapters on simple approach features, good points and capabilities special to army airplane, gas dealing with, gas volume gauging and administration, gas platforms safeguard and gasoline structures layout and improvement.
  • Accompanied by way of a better half site housing a MATLAB/SIMULINK version of a latest airplane gasoline procedure that permits the consumer to establish flight stipulations, examine the consequences of kit disasters and almost fly preset missions.

Aircraft gas Systems offers a well timed and useful source for engineers, venture and programme managers within the apparatus provide and alertness groups, in addition to for graduate and postgraduate scholars of mechanical and aerospace engineering. It constitutes a useful addition to the tested Wiley Aerospace Series.Content:

Example text

From the initial concept studies, a number of possible system design solutions typically emerge for further detailed evaluation reference [3]. During this trade study exercise both technical and program risks are identified and mitigation strategies considered. Certification strategies including the need for special purpose test rigs may be developed. One or two of the most favorable approaches are then reviewed by the aircraft systems design team before Aircraft Fuel Systems Roy Langton, Chuck Clark, Martin Hewitt and Lonnie Richards © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

These applications attempt to put into perspective the content of the book from the design, development, certification and operational aspects of aircraft fuel systems. The final chapter provides a view of the future regarding aircraft fuel systems technology and where this may take us from a systems and component design and development perspective. The need to develop a revolutionary gauging technology has occupied the engineering community for many years. Capacitance gauging in either its AC or DC form has been the accepted standard of the industry for the past fifty years or more notwithstanding the recent ventures into ultrasonic gauging technology adopted by Boeing for their 777 aircraft.

While under-wing engine installations are clearly the most preferable from a fuel system design perspective the close proximity to the fuel tanks presents a significant rotor burst failure concern as shown above. With wing-mounted engines there is already a positive fuel head between the fuel tanks and the engine inlet which helps to ensure a positive fuel feed head at the engine interface even with feed pumps inoperative. Rear-mounted engines, however, present a much more challenging situation to the aircraft fuel system designer.
