During flight, pilots need to be aware of many system characteristics and conditions in order to safely and efficiently operate the aircraft. Across the various flight conditions that are tracked during a typical flight, pressure is an important characteristic that can have major effects on many systems. Ranging from hydraulic fluid pressure that ensures force for actuation to oil pressure that is paramount for proper engine lubrication and cooling, the pressure of various systems can have a great effect on the performance of the aircraft during flight.

The turbofan is a common type of gas turbine engine that is implemented on aircraft for the means of propulsion generation. Unlike other types of gas turbine engines, the turbofan utilizes a ducted fan to accelerate air for increased thrust. Sitting between propeller engines and turbojets for their speed capabilities, turbofans are the most efficient when flying at 270 to 540 knots. As turbofans are common engine types for numerous aircraft, it can be very useful to understand how they are installed for the means of various assembly, repair, and overhaul procedures alike.

There are many different choices when it comes to the ways in which power can be generated. Among the options are combustion engines, rotary engines, Stirling engines, and many more. However, when it comes to cogeneration, or the combined generation of electricity and other energy (particularly heat), some engines are better than others. In this blog, we will look at the reciprocating engine and analyze the benefits it provides in both power generation and cogeneration.

A relay is an electrically operated switch consisting of a set of input terminals for one or more control signals and a set of operating contact terminals. The switch can have any variety of contacts in multiple contact forms, such as make contacts, break contacts, or combinations of the two. There are many types of relays classified based on their function, applications, configuration, structure, and more. This blog will look at the most popular types of relays.

Within the electronics industry and electronic manufacturing, resistors serve as one of the most common parts of a circuit. As a passive electrical component, a resistor provides electrical resistance in order to mitigate current flow, divide voltages, change signal levels, and more. Due to their ability to control current and protect components, resistors can serve a variety of applications for electronics. As the oldest form of resistor, the wire wound resistor in particular is one that has served many applications reliably over the years. Though simplistic in its nature and construction, the wire wound resistor is utilized for a multitude of high power circuits, ranging in application from current sensing to space & defense products.

When aircraft operate through cold winter months and hot summer days, the aircraft HVAC system is important for maintaining the comfort of passengers within the cabin. Beyond temperature control, providing a steady supply of air to the cabin also ensures that there is an optimal amount of pressure within the cabin, all while maintaining hygiene through the cycling of older air. In this blog, we will discuss the aircraft air conditioning system, allowing you to better understand how passengers are kept comfortable throughout a flight regardless of the environment outside.

You might have taken note of a few things during your flight travels or when you gaze up at a night sky. The one thing you will definitely have noticed is that the aircraft is geared with a number of illuminating lights. If you are the more detail-oriented type, you might have even noticed that planes flash different sets of lights during landing and takeoff. If you’re an inquisitive type, you probably asked yourself what might the intention and design be behind this design, what does the positioning and different colored lights mean? If you are curious to find out or if you are entering the aircraft industrial industry and want to brush up your knowledge, read the article below and find out why such aircraft lights were put in place and how they air with flight crews.

Air bearings, also known as aerostatic or aerodynamic bearings, are fluid bearings that utilize a thin film of pressurized gas to provide a low-friction, load-bearing interface between two surfaces. The two surfaces do not touch, therefore avoiding the traditional problems bearings face such as friction, wear, particulates, and lubricant handling. These differ from ball bearings, where the balls are in constant contact with one another and form a solid bridge between the machine elements. Air bearings offer a number of distinct advantages in precision positioning and high speed applications, where they lack backlash and static friction.

Typically, a specific but basic light pattern is required of most marine vessels so that they can be used to show other boats where they are positioned during foggy weather and can among other things prevent boat crash incidents. In the same way that aircraft must have a specific set of patterned lights that alert neighboring aircraft of their position, so too do boats and other marine vessels have various navigational marine lights. For more information on this, read the article below.

There are several methods that can be taken with fire prevention and fire protection. Some simple yet complex methods include the water sprinkler systems. The water sprinkler system is a required necessity in any building as not having one could significantly impact fire prevention in a scenario where it would be desperately needed. Though they are an essential item to have in any building, it is also essential to understand the systems involved as well as some of the advantages and drawbacks of every material that ought to be assessed before installation. In this article, you can find more information for that below. .
