  4. In-Service Fatigue Loads Data Gathering

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: AF112213

    ABSTRACT: Structural monitoring of the landing gear of fixed and rotary wing aircraft is of critical importance to the Air Force. These structures are subjected to repeated large dynamic loads that are highly variable in nature. In order to track these structures"fatigue over time, the magnitude and direction of load events and the number of fatigue cycles must be recorded. Smart, embedded mult ...

  5. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...
