Defining and Measuring Factors Affecting Helicopter Turbine Engine Power Available

2020-02-12
WIP
ARP1702B
The purpose of this Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to define a method of measuring those factors affecting installed power available for helicopter power plants. These factors are installation losses, accessory power extraction, and operational effects. Accurate determination of these factors is vital in the calculation of helicopter performance as described in the flight manual. It is intended that the methods herein prescribe and define each factor as well as an approach to measuring said factor. Only standard installations of turboshaft engines in helicopters are considered. Special arrangements leading to high installation losses, such as the fitting of an infrared suppressor may require individual techniques for the determiantion and definition of engine installation losses.

Performance of Low Pressure Ratio Ejectors for Engine Nacelle Cooling

1999-03-01
CURRENT
AIR1191A
A general method for the preliminary design of a single, straight-sided, low subsonic ejector is presented. The method is based on the information presented in References 1, 2, 3, and 4, and utilizes analytical and empirical data for the sizing of the ejector mixing duct diameter and flow length. The low subsonic restriction applies because compressibility effects were not included in the development of the basic design equations. The equations are restricted to applications where Mach numbers within the ejector primary or secondary flow paths are equal to or less than 0.3.

Oil Systems for Helicopter Powerplants

1998-11-01
CURRENT
AIR4281
Turbine engines installed in helicopters require a highly sophisticated oil system to fulfill two tasks: a Cooling/oil supply b Lubrication While lubrication is an engine internal procedure, cooling and oil supply require more or less design activity on the aircraft side of the engine/airframe interface for proper engine function, depending on the engine type. The necessity for engine cooling and oil supply provisions on the airframe can lead to interface problems because the helicopter manufacturer can influence engine related functions due to the design of corresponding oil system components. This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) deals with integration of engine oil systems with the airframe and gives information for both helicopter and engine manufacturers for a better understanding of interface requirements.

Twin Engine Helicopter Power Requirements

1997-06-01
CURRENT
AIR1850A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) defines the power spectrum during normal and emergency operations of a twin engine helicopter and thereby postulates suitable power plant rating structures. This document does not address the power requirements for single engine helicopters or those with more than two engines.

Helicopter Engine/Airframe Interface Document and Checklist

1997-06-01
CURRENT
ARP1507A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides a guide for the preparation of a Helicopter Engine/Airframe Interface Document and Checklist. This document and checklist is intended to provide complete relevant information on the characteristics, performance, and engine interfaces. Of most importance is the identification of the data and the location of data to assure that the engine manufacturer and the airframe manufacturer supply information that can be easily located by either manufacturer.

HELICOPTER POWERPLANT CORROSION PROTECTION

1993-05-01
CURRENT
AIR4495
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) describes the different aspects of corrosion on helicopter powerplants, on the components that are affected, and the subsequent consequences on the helicopter, engine durability, performance, and dependability. Guidelines that minimize corrosion during the design stage and during service operation are also discussed.

EVALUATION OF HELICOPTER TURBINE ENGINE LINEAR VIBRATION ENVIRONMENT

1992-03-01
CURRENT
AIR1289A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) outlines a recommended procedure for evaluation of the vibration environment to which the gas turbine engine powerplant is subjected in the helicopter installation. This analysis of engine vibration is normally demonstrated on a one-time basis upon initial certification, or after a major modification, of an engine/helicopter configuration. This AIR deals with linear vibration as measured on the basic case structure of the engine and not, for example, torsional vibration in drive shafting or vibration of a component within the engine such as a compressor or turbine airfoil. In summary, this AIR discusses the engine manufacturer’s "Installation Test Code" aspects of engine vibration and proposes an appropriate measurement method.
