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).
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of bars up through 1.000 inch (25.40 mm) in diameter or least distance between parallel sides, inclusive, forgings of thickness up through 1.000 inch (25.40 mm), inclusive, high strength fastener stock up through 1.250 inch (31.75 mm), inclusive, and stock for forging of any size.
This specification covers a silicone rubber material that can be used to manufacture product in the form of sheet, strip, tubing, molded shapes, and extrusions. This specification should not be used to address products such as O-rings, compression seals, O-ring cord, and molded-in-place gaskets.
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.
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.
The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide the aerospace industry with recommendations concerning minimizing stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) in wrought high-strength aluminum alloy products.
