  • Modeling HIRF Effects on Aircraft
    . The computer model includes the fuselage, the furniture and a cable harness. The virtual aircraft is assumed to be in free space, and exposed to a plane wave [2]. Figure 1: Virtual aircraft (a) and its physical counterpart (b). The HIRF frequency spectrum is divided in three frequency bands: Low
  • Boeing Uses CSR Simulations to Raise Productivity of Large Riveting Machine for Fuselage Assemblies
    Leading aerospace company Boeing is using CimStation Robotics and SoftMachine simulation software from Applied Computing & Engineering to increase the productivity of large riveting machines used in the construction of aircraft fuselage assemblies at its Kansas production facility. Boeing's Wichita
  • A makeover for transport aircraft?
    The blended-wing-body concept could change the face of transport aircraft and airliners. From the earliest days of aviation, transport aircraft, along with most others, have relied on a single type of design, tube (or fuselage), and wing. It has served well and engineers at Airbus and Boeing
  • Boeing Uses LMS SYSNOISE to Predict Acoustics of Aircraft Cabins
    that emanates from the engine. N1 and N2, the two major engine shaft tones are typically at 40-100 Hz and 100-200 Hz respectively, generate vibration energy that goes through the wing and into the fuselage, which couples with cabin acoustic modes. Because of this coupling, the entire aircraft needs
  • Laser Trackers Shrink Aircraft-Sized Manufacturing Problems (.pdf)
    Building aircraft has always been a struggle between the size of their components and the need to craft them carefully. More than any other device, airplanes epitomize the concept that "the devil is in the details" because in small errors lies the potential for great mischief such as increased drag
  • A century of progress in aircraft materials - Part 2 Metals
    . bought an aircraft company to supply planes to its airline. And based on Henry Ford's belief in using three engines for safety, a monoplane to avoid icing, and metal to simplify manufacturing, the company built the 4-AT. It was quickly dubbed the Tin Goose for its corrugated metal fuselage. (AT stood
  • Facilitating Commercial Aircraft Maintenance With Nook Ball Screws
    As a leading designer and manufacturer of airline maintenance stands and docking systems, Uni-Systems was one of several companies to respond to a request for proposal from American Airlines to develop a sophisticated maintenance docking system for its Boeing 777 and 767 class aircraft. To keep
  • A century of progress in aircraft materials - Part 1 Wood and Fabric
    yet strong enough to skin an aircraft, but they won't work in stressed-skin designs. Plywood, on the other hand, seemed just right to those trained and experienced in using wood and reluctant to make the jump to metal skins in the 1920s. One of the earliest planes with a plywood monocoque fuselage
