Pressure Transients in Aerial Refueling Systems 831431

Simulations of pressure transients are obtained for tanker aerial refueling systems during tanker disconnects from receiver aircraft using a fluid transient analysis computer program. Effects of tanker nozzle valve closure characteristics on transient pressures are described. The results are compared with experimental results reported in the literature. Reasonable agreement is obtained.
