Aircraft Wheels

Aircraft Brakes. Very early aircraft have no brake system to slow and stop the aircraft while it is on the ground. Instead, they rely on slow speeds, soft airfield surfaces, and the friction developed by the tail skid to reduce speed during ground operation. Brake systems designed for aircraft became common after World War I as the speed and complexity of aircraft increased and the use of smooth, paved runway surfaces proliferated. All modern aircraft are equipped with brakes. Their proper functioning is relied upon for safe operation of the aircraft on the ground.

A brake is a device for slowing or stopping the motion of a machine or vehicle, or restraining it from starting to move again. Aircraft brakes, for land based aircraft, are almost exclusively located on the main wheels although there have been some aircraft over the years which have also had nose wheel brakes. Operation of the brakes has evolved from a single lever applying all brakes symmetrically, to heel operated pedals, to toe operated brake controls incorporated into the rudder pedals. With the foot operated controls came the ability to apply left or right brakes independently allowing use of differential braking to steer the aircraft during ground operations and to maintain directional control during that portion of the takeoff or landing roll when the airspeed is too low for the aerodynamic controls to be effective.


We will help you to choose the dimension and brake torque adapted to your aircraft. We have a large range of assem- blies: wheel / brake caliper / brake pad /.


Dunlop—Tyres, Wheels and Brakes

Airliner wheels are subjected to the daily punishment of multiple takeoffs and landings. Wheels must handle the most extreme torture in aviation: a maximum weight, high-speed rejected takeoff: A fully loaded aircraft accelerates to takeoff speed, then stops on the remaining runway. Tires withstand extreme heat and stress until the aircraft is safely stopped.

IN a previous article the subject of wheel brakes for aeroplanes was surveyed and the various types of brake in use briefly described. It is now proposed to deal in exact detail with hydraulic brakes, which are receiving more and more attention for installation in aircraft. Waring Brown, R. Report bugs here.

While the wheels provide the structural support and strength to the tires, the brakes play a vital role during the landing and takeoff of an aircraft. Moreover, these wheels are made as light as possible in order to achieve low fuel consumption for the aircraft.

Aircraft Brakes

ON the assumption that brakes are essential to the operation of modern aircraft, the question of design must be considered, and the exact functions must be studied with a view to obtaining the desired results. The chief requirements of ideal brakes may be summarized as follows:—. Report bugs here. Please share your general feedback.

Вопрос национальной безопасности. За дверью послышалось движение, раздались голоса. Он постучал. Послышался голос с сильным немецким акцентом: - Ja. Беккер молчал.

Внезапно сзади ее обхватили и крепко сжали чьи-то руки. Их прикосновение было знакомым, но вызывало отвращение. Б нем не чувствовалось грубой силы Грега Хейла, скорее - жестокость отчаяния, внутренняя бездушная решительность. Сьюзан повернулась. Человек, попытавшийся ее удержать, выглядел растерянным и напуганным, такого лица у него она не видела. - Сьюзан, - умоляюще произнес Стратмор, не выпуская ее из рук.

Мидж повернулась на вращающемся стуле. - Такой список выдает только принтер Фонтейна. Ты это отлично знаешь. - Но такие сведения секретны. - У нас чрезвычайная ситуация, и мне нужен этот список. Бринкерхофф положил руки ей на плечи.

 - Танкадо оставил нам только один выход-признать существование ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Такая возможность. Последний шанс. Но мы его упустили. - Не могу с ним не согласиться, - заметил Фонтейн.  - Сомневаюсь, что Танкадо пошел бы на риск, дав нам возможность угадать ключ к шифру-убийце. Сьюзан рассеянно кивнула, но тут же вспомнила, как Танкадо отдал им Северную Дакоту.

Танкадо зашифровал Цифровую крепость, и только ему известен ключ, способный ее открыть. Но Сьюзан трудно было представить себе, что где-то - например, на клочке бумаги, лежащем в кармане Танкадо, - записан ключ из шестидесяти четырех знаков, который навсегда положит конец сбору разведывательной информации в Соединенных Штатах. Ей стало плохо, когда она представила себе подобное развитие событий.
