Simulation solves C5 cargo door problem
Dynamic analysis software allows engineers to solve fatigue-related
problems without prototypes.
Although unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been employed
successfully by the U.S. military to date, many development and
operational challenges remain for these to become viable
alternatives for manned aircraft.
Aircraft engine testing: the test tig
Engineers at Belcan's Advanced Engineering & Technology
Division share their insights and experiences on the development of
aircraft gas turbine test rigs and stands. This is the first
installment of a three-part series on aircraft engine testing.
Looking back at factory automation
The ability to improve quality while substantially reducing the
cost of production and span times is becoming a necessity to
complete in today's aerospace industry. Matt Borland, Director
of Production Integration on the C-17, Airlift, and Tanker
programs, talked about the value that automation presented to the
C-17 assembly program.
