20.What is the purpose of load extension graphs
Load extension graphs are used to show the result of mechanical test done on the material to know their certain properties for example finding out the heat treatment of a material. These graphs shows certain phases of a material when it is being tested for destruction of the properties like elastic range, limit of proportionality, etc. The material needs to obey Hooke’s law. The elastic limit needs to be at or very near to the limit of proportionality. If the limit is passed the material ceases to be proportional to the load. If the stress increases on the material then the waist reduces as the stress = force/area. This graph represents a curve that shows different stages like elastic stage, and plastic stage
21.Why is torsion such an important feature in aircraft engines
Torsion is used to drive shafts for aircraft engine driven pumps and motors. They are also involved in having a force behind propeller shafts, pulley assemblies and rive couplings for machinery. The shear stress is setup within the shafts and it results from the torsional loads. The size and the nature of torsional loads and stresses need to be known while making the design or else premature failure can occur. The shafts are used as a component to transmit torsional loads and twisting moments or torque. They can be a cross section or a circular component as it is more suitable to transmit the torque for pumps and motors to supply the power to the aircraft system
22.What is the main function of propulsive thrust
Propulsive thrust is used in aircraft system, when an aircraft is traveling through air in straight or level flight then the engine produces a thrust that is equal to the air resistance or the drag force on the aircraft. If the engine thrust exceeds the drag then the aircraft will accelerate and if drag exceeds the engine thrusts then the aircraft system will slow down. The thrust force that is used for aircraft propulsion should always come from air or gas pressure. The forces that are external always act on the engine or propeller. This propeller can be driven either by a piston or a gas turbine engine. If there is a use of jet engine then the high velocity exhaust gas is produced
23.Why is the study of gyroscopes motion required to learn aircraft applications
Gyroscopic motion is considered as an important study for aircraft application for the inertia and momentum of the body that is used in circular motion. The momentum is the product of the mass of a body and its velocity. This is a measure of the quantity of motion of a body. Inertia is the force that doesn’t allow any change to happen in momentum. Gyroscope is the rotating mass that can be moved freely at right angles to its plane of rotation. This utilizes the gyro rotor or gyroscopic inertia to provide the motion unless it is compelled by an external force to change the state. This uses property of rigidity as gyroscope acts as a reference point in space
24.What are the laws of gyro-dynamics Gyro-dynamics deals with gyroscopic motion that is used for creating aircraft application as it allows inertia and momentum of the body. These laws consist of the two properties of rigidity and precession to provide the visible effects gyro-dynamics. These are as follows
If a rotating body is mounted and it is free to move about any axis that passes through the center of mass, then the spin axis that is used will remain fixed in inertial space without displacing any of the frame If a constant torque is applied to any direction such as about an axis, or perpendicular to the axis, then the spin axis will move about an axis that is mutually perpendicular to both the spin and the torque axis
25.What is being expressed by Sperry’s rule of precession
Sperry’s rule of precession describes about the direction in which the precession takes place. This precession is dependent on the direction of rotation for the mass and the axis of the torque that is applied on the material. It provides a guide to the direction of precession that allows easy finding of the direction of the applied torque. This also helps in finding out the direction of the rotation of gyro-wheel. If the torque is applied and is perpendicular to the spin axis then it can be transferred as a force
26.What are the elements required to display oscillatory motion The elements required to display oscillatory motion are as follows
Periodthis is related to the time and it
signifies the time that elapses in between the motion that will repeat itself after some time again. Oscillatory motions allow themselves to be repeated after equal intervals of time and this is called as periodic Cycleit represents the completion of one period and it also signifies the motion that is completed in one period Frequencydefines the number of cycles completed in unit time Amplitudedefines the distance from one point to another or from highest to lowest point of the motion from the central position
27.What are the different lift augmentation devices present
Lift augmentation devices provides flaps that are moving wing sections that increase wing camber and provide an angel of attack. Flaps have their own use like if an aircraft takes off and land in a short distance then the wings of it should produce sufficient lift at lower speed. Flaps provide a way to slow down the aircraft. There two categories and they are as follows
Trailing edge flaps includes different flaps like
Plain flap that is used to retract the complete section of trailing edge and it is used in downward Split flap gets formed by the hinged lower part of trailing edge and the lowered top surface remains unchanged and it eliminates the airflow that occurs over the top of the surface of the plain flap Leading edge flaps: is used to augment the low speed lift that is swept on the wing aircraft. They help in increase the camber and allow the coupling to operate together with the trailing edge flaps
28.What are the steps required to solve the problems of aircraft flying high and at very large speed
There are various steps required to solve the problems of aircraft flying high and at very large speed are as follows
Build stiff wings that allow and provide the resistance to torsional diversion beyond the maximum speed of the aircraft Use two sets of ailerons and one outboard pair that can be operated at low speeds Use of one inboard pair that can be used to operate on high speeds, this will have less twisting impact when the ailerons are positioned outboard
Use spoilers that can be positioned independently or can be paired with ailerons. These reduce the lift on the down going wing by interrupting the airflow over the top surface
29.What are the functions performed by rudder
The rudder is involved in providing the movement to the ports that gives a lift force to starboard. This will allow the aircraft to turn and uses the ailerons effectively to bank the aircraft by minimum use of rudder. The functions performed by rudder are as follows
It is used with different applications that are involved in taking off and landing to keep aircraft straight Providing assistance that is, limited only for the aircraft to turn correctly Used in applications during spin to reduce the roll rate of the aircraft and there are some applications that provides low speeds and high angles to allow the raising of the wings
30.What are the criteria need to be followed for an aircraft to be longitudinal statically stable
The criteria that are required for an aircraft to be longitudinal statically stable, is
To have a nose-down pitching disturbance that is used to produce the aerodynamics forces to give a nose-up restoring moment
This restoring moment that is produced should be large enough to
return the aircraft to its original position after the disturbance
The requirements are met by using the tail-plain that is horizontal stabilizer used to provide the stability to the aircraft
