This four hour short course intends to present an overview of seals and sealing system design for military and commercial aircraft. It is aimed to provide engineers having some previous actuator and control valve design background with an understanding of the general hardware groove standards, standard parts for static applications and how seal designs and sealing systems can be best used in dynamic reciprocating and rotary applications. Information will be provided regarding seal material and fluid compatibility, friction drag, expected wear rates depending on operating conditions and duty cycle, hardware surface finish and topography. Also included will be information on seal installation procedures and potential pitfalls to avoid.
