To present a summary of the guidelines and practices presently being used by the aerospace industry for the selection of coiled tubes, flexible hoses, swivel fittings, and extension fittings in aircraft fluid systems.
These formulae shall be used to determine drop dimensions for simple bend tube fittings utilizing flare and flareless end connection designs from 0° to 90° used in aircraft and aerospace applications. Individual design standards shall specify parameters, such as centerline bend radius (R), straight tangent length to accommodate bending equipment (X1 and X2), and nut to be used.
This recommended practice covers the requirements and qualification tests for two types of flexible all-metal hose assemblies intended for hydraulic use on missile and rocket applications at rated pressures of 4000 psi. Type I -65° to +650 °F service temperature range Type II -65° to +1000 °F service temperature range
