AIRCRAFT FLEXIBLE TANKS GENERAL DESIGN AND INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS

1994-09-01
HISTORICAL
AIR1664
This Aerospace Information Report (AIR) includes general information about the various types and styles of flexible tanks and the tank-mounted fittings that adapt the tank to the surrounding structure and fluid-system plumbing. Recommendations are given relative to the dimensional layout of the tank when these recommendations serve to avoid tank fabrication problems and tank/structure interface problems. As a part of these recommendations, critical dimensions of plumbing adapter fittings are discussed and recommendations made. Tank manufacturing tolerances are given. Recommendations are made relative to cavity design and preparation to facilitate a reliable installation. The special installation requirements of non-self-sealing, self-sealing, and crash-resistant tanks are discussed. This document is not intended to replace the information or requirements of the military and commercial procurement specifications listed in section 3.

Aerospace Fuel System Specifications and Standards

1986-09-01
HISTORICAL
AIR1408A
This report lists documents that aid and govern the design of gas turbine powered aircraft and missile fuel systems. The report lists the military and industry specifications and standards and the most notable design handbooks that are commonly used in fuel system design. The specifications and standards section has been divided into two parts, a master list arranged numerically of all industry and military specifications and standards and a component list that provides a functional breakdown and a cross-reference of these documents. It is intended that this report be a supplement to specifications MIL-F-8615, MIL-F-17874, MIL-F-38363 and MIL-F-87154. Revisions and amendments which are correct for the specifications and standards are not listed. The fuel system design handbooks are listed for fuels and for system and component design.

CURRENT
AIR7484
This document describes a number of jet fuel properties and where applicable gives the specification limits for Jet A and Jet A-1, though the properties are generally applicable to all turbine fuels. Later versions of this document will give more details on specification limits for other similar fuels, such as TS-1, where they differ from Jet A and Jet-A1. It gives details about the possible impact on airframe fuel system design.

Minimization of Electrostatic Hazards in Aircraft Fuel Systems

1998-09-01
CURRENT
AIR1662A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides background information, technical data and related technical references for minimization of electrostatic hazards in aircraft fuel systems. Techniques used to minimize the electrostatic hazard include: a Reducing fueling rate into tank bays including use of multiple refueling inlet nozzles. b Reducing refuel plumbing flow velocities. c Introducing fuel into the tank at a low velocity near the bottom and directing it to impinge upon a grounded conducting surface. d Avoiding electrically isolated conductors in the fuel tank. e Using conductivity additives in the fuel.
