  1. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Such low ambient temperatures influence the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  4. Optimal Design and Prototype Development of Aircraft Generators with Increased Power Density

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF071188

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to investigate design techniques to improve torque density, power density, and efficiency in wound-rotor synchronous machines. The underlying principle of the proposed design technique is to alter the flux paths in the machine to increase torque production. This will be achieved through optimally altering the stator tooth geometry, rotor tooth geomet ...

  8. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  10. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1
