The Hydraulic System of the Concorde 670531

The paper discusses special problems of hydraulic system design for a supersonic transport resulting from high ambient temperatures, weight and space limitations, and the requirements of the working fluid. The methods which have been developed to overcome these problems are discussed and a full description of the CONCORDE hydraulic system is given. The paper includes a summary of the system reliability analysis and the test program which has been undertaken to substantiate the design.
