Hydraulic System Arrangement Trade Studies Improve Aircraft Survivability 871862

This investigation analyzes the concept of centrally locating components in hydraulic system design to yield increased aircraft survivability. This concept locates aircraft hydraulic hardware in centrally located armor-protected enclosures. The approach taken for analysis purposes consists of (1) development of a baseline hydraulic system; (2) development of two hydraulic system design options, Options A and B, incorporating centrally located hydraulic system armor protected for survivability; (3) evaluation of the relative merit of Options A and B by comparison to the baseline configuration, and development of a third design, Option C incorporating these results and other ideas.
