This 4 hour short course offers an overview of aircraft hydraulic pumps focusing on their application in hydraulic systems, design and performance characteristics, and integration issues. These topics will examine the various pump technologies available for aircraft system applications, their design, performance and operational characteristics and limitations, and discuss the challenges and lessons learned in the integration of pumps in hydraulic systems.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This seminar is designed for engineers, executives, and other key personnel with some experience in hydraulic pump design or system integration. The former will benefit in understanding the application and integration of pumps, while the latter will benefit in understanding the complexities and limitations of current pump designs.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
Mr. Stricker has worked since 1983 in the aerospace industry, working on hydraulic systems and components for Vickers, which was later acquired by Eaton Corporation. During the first twenty years, he was engaged in the engineering design and development of hydraulic pumps, motors and integrated systems for commercial, military fixed and rotor wing aircraft, as well as ground defense vehicles. During the last fifteen years, Mr. Stricker has been involved in the Sales and Marketing side of the business, providing technical sales and marketing support and financial modeling for commercial and military aircraft hydraulic systems. Beginning during the spring of 2014, he will be â€œsemi-retiredâ€, working on selected engineering projects. Mr. Stricker is currently Vice Chairman of the Power Sources Panel of SAE Committee A6, Aerospace Actuation, Control and Fluid Power Systems. He has authored two recent SAE documents, AIR5872 Aerospace Hydraulic Pump Controls and ARP4940 Application Guide for Aerospace Hydraulic Motors. Mr. Stricker holds a B.S. Mechanical Engineering from McGill University, a M.S. Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia, and an M.B.A. from Millsaps College. He has been a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Mississippi since 1980.
