Metal Clad Fibers for Electrical Shielding & Harness Overbraid

2002-06-06
HISTORICAL
AIR5464
Over the past decade several metal clad fibers and fabrics have been developed to provide aerospace vehicle designers with a conductive, lighter weight alternative to coated copper or steel for shielding and harness overbraids of electrical cables. Several of these candidates have been unable to provide the strength or thermal stability necessary for the aerospace environment. However, the aramid-based products have shown remarkable resistance to the rigorous environment of aerospace vehicles. Concurrent with these fiber developments, there have been changes in the structures of aerospace vehicles involving greater use of nonmetallic outer surfaces. This has resulted in a need for increased shielding of electrical cables which adds substantial weight to the vehicle. Thus, a lighter weight shielding material has become more critical to meet the performance requirements of the vehicle.

Investigation of Whisker Formation on Tin Plated Conductors

1998-12-01
HISTORICAL
AIR5444
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) shall be limited to general information about tin whisker formation on tin plated conductors. It summarizes the mechanisms of metal whisker formation and describes possible conclusions as related to tin plated conductors. It also provides a number of reference documents that describes research and observations of the whisker phenomena, recommendations to prevent its formation and conclusions. The investigation by this task group of AE-8D was initiated by a request of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, to determine if the phenomenon of tin whiskers is a problem in aerospace wire and cable.

CURRENT
AS1198
This standard is issued in loose leaf form to permit the insertion or removal of new or revised sections and test methods. All users of this standard should keep it up-to-date by inserting the revised or new sections and test methods as issued and by removing the superseded pages. New and revised sections will be issued with a revised title page showing the latest revision date and with a revised index Section 3). In Section 3, the most closely corresponding FED, TEST METHOD STD NO. 228 Method number and the most closely corresponding ASTM Test Procedure is given for reference purposes. No implication of agreement with those test methods or procedures is intended. This standard gives the general physical, electrical, and chemical methods for testing wires and cables for conformance to the requirements of their controlling detail specifications and other related documents. This standard also includes methods (Group 5000) for comparative evaluation testing of wires and cables.
