Laser surface treatment machine for Ariane 6 Cryogenic Tanks

2019-09-16
2019-01-1897
Surface treatment of cryogenic tanks (liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen) for the Ariane 6 Space Launcher is a critical step for the adhesion of insulation materials. This operation is currently performed by the help of chemical products which are for some of them carcinogenic, mutagenic and repro-toxic. The large tank dimensions require using an important quantity of those products which generate massive recurring costs and health and environment problems. ArianeGroup has previously qualified and patented the Laser Surface Treatment as a replacement solution to chemical process. The aim is to use energy provided by infrared laser beam to modify the top layer of the tank surface. The chosen technology is Nd-YAG pulsed laser. Electroimpact has been chosen to carry out the industrial application.

Runway Deicing Product Anti/Deicing Performance Assessment: Review and Future Directions

2019-06-10
2019-01-1974
Every winter, northern airport operations are disrupted by heavy snowstorms and freezing precipitations. A simple snow accumulation or a thin layer of ice can affect aircraft operations (take-off, landing and taxi), and increase the risk for passengers and crew members, by rendering the runway slippery. Any deficits in deicing operations can also lead to flight delays and even cancellations that cost a lot to the industry. In order to maintain the runway and taxiway in a safe and useable condition, airport authorities use mechanical tools, but also chemical products. Chemical products available on the market for use in airports are principally in solid forms and liquid form, and are denominated as Runway Deicing Product (RDP).

Glossary of Carbon Steel Sheet and Strip Terms

2019-05-19
WIP
J940
This glossary is intended to provide engineers, metallurgists, and production personnel with uniform definitions of commonly used carbon sheet and strip terms. The glossary serves to supplement information and photographs reported in SAE J810, J763, J877, J863, and J403. Many of the terms listed apply only to hot-dipped zinc-coated products or to uncoated products. The letter C following the term identifies a term applying to coated materials, while the letters NC identify a term applying to uncoated materials. Where no identification is provided, the term is common to both.

Composites and Metal Bonding Glossary

2019-04-24
WIP
AIR4844D
The following terminology has been generated by the ATA/IATA/SAE Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC) and provides terminology for design, fabrication, and repair of composite and bonded metal structures. The purpose of this AIR is to provide terminology that should be used when developing CACRC repair documents or repair documents produced by airlines or airframe and engine manufacturers. It is intended to develop this AIR into an AS.

Environmental Degradation of Textiles

2019-04-24
CURRENT
AIR1490C
Since cargo restraint devices made with textiles should have a predictable service life, there should be data available so that predictions can be made. This document compiles available information on textiles of the types used in air cargo restraint devices and reviews the degradation characteristics of each. Textiles are used primarily in cargo restraint nets on air cargo pallets and nonstructural containers, restraint nets installed in cargo aircraft, and similar applications.
