Air evacuation under high-level biosafety containment: the aeromedical isolation team. (1/465)

Military contingency operations in tropical environments and potential use of biological weapons by adversaries may place troops at risk for potentially lethal contagious infections (e.g., viral hemorrhagic fevers, plague, and zoonotic poxvirus infections). Diagnosis and treatment of such infections would be expedited by evacuating a limited number of patients to a facility with containment laboratories. To safely evacuate such patients by military aircraft and minimize the risk for transmission to air crews, caregivers, and civilians, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases maintains an aeromedical isolation team. This rapid response team, which has worldwide airlift capability designed to evacuate and manage patients under high-level containment, also offers a portable containment laboratory, limited environmental decontamination, and specialized consultative expertise. This article also examines technical aspects of the team's equipment, training, capabilities, and deployments.  (+info)

Two cases of Chromobacterium violaceum infection after injury in a subtropical region. (2/465)

Chromobacterium violaceum is a gram-negative rod and is isolated from soil and water in tropical and subtropical regions. The species have pigmented and nonpigmented colony types. Infections caused by nonpigmented strains are rare. We report on two cases of infection caused by both pigmented and nonpigmented strains of C. violaceum. Two 24-year-old Korea Airline stewardesses were admitted to Inha University Hospital, Inchon, South Korea, on 9 August 1997, 3 days after an airplane accident in Guam. Both had multiple lacerations on exposed parts of their bodies. There was swelling, tenderness, and pus discharge. The wounds contained many small fragments of stones and weeds. A pigmented strain was isolated from the left hand and a nonpigmented strain was isolated from the left knee of one patient. For the other patient only a nonpigmented strain was isolated from a foot wound. The nonpigmented colonies from the left-knee and the left-foot wounds did not produce any pigment even after an extended period of incubation. The biochemical characteristics were the same for each strain except for oxidase and indole reactions. The pigmented strain was oxidase negative and indole positive, whereas the nonpigmented strains were oxidase positive and indole negative. The patients were successfully treated by debridement and with appropriate antibiotics.  (+info)

Pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms in a population of airport workers. (3/465)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of respiratory symptoms and to measure spirometry in a sample of employees of Birmingham International Airport, United Kingdom, to examine whether occupational exposure to aircraft fuel or jet stream exhaust might be associated with respiratory symptoms or abnormalities of lung function. METHODS: Cross sectional survey by questionnaire and on site measurement of lung function, skin prick tests, and exhaled carbon monoxide concentrations. Occupational exposure was assigned by job title, between group comparison were made by logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: 222/680 full time employees were studied (mean age 38.6 y, 63% male, 28% current smokers, 6% self reported asthma, 19% self reported hay fever). Upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms were common and 51% had one or more positive skin tests. There were no significant differences in lung function tests between exposure groups. Between group comparisons of respiratory symptoms were restricted to male members of the medium and high exposure groups. The adjusted odds ratio (OR) for cough with phlegm and runny nose were found to be significantly associated with high exposure (OR 3.5, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.23 to 9.74 and 2.9, 1.32 to 6.40 respectively) when the measured confounding effects of age and smoking, and in the case of runny nose, self reported hay fever had been taken into account. There was no obvious association between high exposure and the presence of shortness of breath or wheeze, or for the symptoms of watering eyes or stuffy nose. CONCLUSIONS: These findings support an association in male airport workers, between high occupational exposures to aviation fuel or jet stream exhaust and excess upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms, in keeping with a respiratory irritant. It is more likely that these effects reflect exposure to exhaust rather than fuel, although the effects of an unmeasured agent cannot be discounted.  (+info)

Medical advice for commercial air travelers. (4/465)

Family physicians are often asked to advise patients who are preparing to travel. The Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 has enabled more passengers with medical disabilities to choose air travel. All domestic U.S. airlines are required to carry basic (but often limited) medical equipment, although several physiologic stresses associated with flight may predispose travelers with underlying medical conditions to require emergency care. Recommendations for passengers with respiratory, cardiac or postsurgical conditions must be individualized and should be based on objective testing measures. Specific advice for patients with diabetes, postsurgical or otolaryngologic conditions may make air travel less hazardous for these persons. Air travel should be delayed after scuba diving to minimize the chance of developing decompression sickness. Although no quick cure for jet lag exists, several simple suggestions may make travel across time zones more comfortable.  (+info)

Reactions of migrating birds to lights and aircraft. (5/465)

Midair collsions between birds and aircraft pose a hazard for both. While observing migrating birds with a tracking radar, we find that birds often react, by taking evasive maneuvers, at distances of 200-300 m to both searchlight beams and the approach of a small airplane with its landing lights on. Appropriately arranged lights on aircraft should decrease the hazard of collisions with birds.  (+info)

Estimates of stratospheric pollution by an analytic model. (6/465)

With suitable choices of the height profile of eddy diffusion coefficient, the vertical flow of an inert tracer is given by an analytic solution. Odd nitrogen, or NOX, from aircraft exhausts can be regarded as such a tracer, and the amount in the stratosphere resulting from a source of a given strength can be immediately calculated. The resulting destruction of ozone is then estimated with the help of a formula obtained from earlier work.  (+info)

Mortality among aircraft manufacturing workers. (7/465)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the risk of cancer and other diseases among workers engaged in aircraft manufacturing and potentially exposed to compounds containing chromate, trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), and mixed solvents. METHODS: A retrospective cohort mortality study was conducted of workers employed for at least 1 year at a large aircraft manufacturing facility in California on or after 1 January 1960. The mortality experience of these workers was determined by examination of national, state, and company records to the end of 1996. Standardised mortality ratios (SMRs) were evaluated comparing the observed numbers of deaths among workers with those expected in the general population adjusting for age, sex, race, and calendar year. The SMRs for 40 cause of death categories were computed for the total cohort and for subgroups defined by sex, race, position in the factory, work duration, year of first employment, latency, and broad occupational groups. Factory job titles were classified as to likely use of chemicals, and internal Poisson regression analyses were used to compute mortality risk ratios for categories of years of exposure to chromate, TCE, PCE, and mixed solvents, with unexposed factory workers serving as referents. RESULTS: The study cohort comprised 77,965 workers who accrued nearly 1.9 million person-years of follow up (mean 24.2 years). Mortality follow up, estimated as 99% complete, showed that 20,236 workers had died by 31 December 1996, with cause of death obtained for 98%. Workers experienced low overall mortality (all causes of death SMR 0.83) and low cancer mortality (SMR 0.90). No significant increases in risk were found for any of the 40 specific cause of death categories, whereas for several causes the numbers of deaths were significantly below expectation. Analyses by occupational group and specific job titles showed no remarkable mortality patterns. Factory workers estimated to have been routinely exposed to chromate were not at increased risk of total cancer (SMR 0.93) or of lung cancer (SMR 1.02). Workers routinely exposed to TCE, PCE, or a mixture of solvents also were not at increased risk of total cancer (SMRs 0.86, 1.07, and 0.89, respectively), and the numbers of deaths for specific cancer sites were close to expected values. Slight to moderately increased rates of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were found among workers exposed to TCE or PCE, but none was significant. A significant increase in testicular cancer was found among those with exposure to mixed solvents, but the excess was based on only six deaths and could not be linked to any particular solvent or job activity. Internal cohort analyses showed no significant trends of increased risk for any cancer with increasing years of exposure to chromate or solvents. CONCLUSIONS: The results from this large scale cohort study of workers followed up for over 3 decades provide no clear evidence that occupational exposures at the aircraft manufacturing factory resulted in increases in the risk of death from cancer or other diseases. Our findings support previous studies of aircraft workers in which cancer risks were generally at or below expected levels.  (+info)

Kinematic synergy adaptation to microgravity during forward trunk movement. (8/465)

The aim of the present investigation was to see whether the kinematic synergy responsible for equilibrium control during upper trunk movement was preserved in absence of gravity constraints. In this context, forward trunk movements were studied during both straight-and-level flights (earth-normal gravity condition: normogravity) and periods of weightlessness in parabolic flights (microgravity). Five standing adult subjects had their feet attached to a platform, their eyes were open, and their hands were clasped behind their back. They were instructed to bend the trunk (the head and the trunk together) forward by approximately 35 degrees with respect to the vertical in the sagittal plane as fast as possible in response to a tone, and then to hold the final position for 3 s. The initial and final anteroposterior center of mass (CM) positions (i.e., 200 ms before the onset of the movement and 400 ms after the offset of the movement, respectively), the time course of the anteroposterior CM shift during the movement, and the electromyographic (EMG) pattern of the main muscles involved in the movement were studied under both normo- and microgravity. The kinematic synergy was quantified by performing a principal components analysis on the hip, knee, and ankle angle changes occurring during the movement. The results indicate that 1) the anteroposterior position of the CM remains minimized during performance of forward trunk movement in microgravity, in spite of the absence of equilibrium constraints; 2) the strong joint coupling between hip, knee, and ankle, which characterizes the kinematic synergy in normogravity and which is responsible for the minimization of the CM shift during movement, is preserved in microgravity. It represents an invariant parameter controlled by the CNS. 3) The EMG pattern underlying the kinematic synergy is deeply reorganized. This is in contrast with the invariance of the kinematic synergy. It is concluded that during short-term microgravity episodes, the kinematic synergy that minimizes the anteroposterior CM shift is surprisingly preserved due to fast adaptation of the muscle forces to the new constraint.  (+info)

An attack aircraft, strike aircraft, or attack bomber, is a tactical military aircraft that has a primary role of carrying out airstrikes with greater precision than bombers, and is prepared to encounter strong low-level air defenses while pressing the attack.[1] This class of aircraft is designed mostly for close air support and naval air-to-surface missions, overlapping the tactical bomber mission. Designs dedicated to non-naval roles are often known as ground-attack aircraft.[2]. Fighter aircraft often carry out the attack role, although they would not be considered attack aircraft per se, although fighter-bomber conversions of those same aircraft would be considered part of the class. Strike fighters, which have effectively replaced the fighter-bomber and light bomber concepts, also differ little from the broad concept of an attack aircraft..

One hundred and thirty-seven jet pilots were studied to obtain information regarding their vertigo experiences in jet aircraft. Individual interviews and a check list of vertigo experiences were used. It was found that 96 per cent of the pilots had experienced vertigo while flying jet aircraft and that the nature of vertigo was essentially the same as that found during flight in propeller driven aircraft. The most frequent illusary experience was found to involve confusions with regard to the attitude and motion of the aircraft. The jet pilots believe that certain unique aspects of jet flight may contribute to difficulties in spatial orientation. (Author)(*VERTIGO
Aircraft noise is a major issue in urban areas and is one of the research topics within the FP7 SONORUS project. Current methods for determining the impact of aircraft noise on annoyance and sleep disturbance are based on energetic quantities neglecting the dynamic character of the sound. To obtain a more complete representation of annoyance, it would be helpful to predict the audible aircraft sound and determine the impact of the aircraft sound on people. In a related project at Empa, sonAIR, recordings were made of aircraft taking off and landing. These recordings were made at several positions and with several microphones simultaneously. Combined with cockpit data, flight path information and an inverse sound propagation model, this gives the possibility to determine the emission as function of aircraft conditions and observer angle. An inverse sound propagation model is used to estimate the emission in the time-domain. The obtained signal corresponds to the immission of a microphone flying along
A landing display system for indicating to the pilot of an aircraft the relationship between his aircraft and a landing runway includes an aircraft symbol providing attitude information with respect to a reference horizon, a velocity vector indicative of the projected flight path of the aircraft, a descent profile vector indicative of the projected descent path of the aircraft, and a runway symbol in perspective to the aircraft. By reference to these displays the pilot can ascertain not only the present position of his aircraft with respect to the runway, but also the consequences of various corrective maneuvers accomplished with the aircraft.
The purpose of this study was to investigate health and annoyance reactions to change in chronic exposure to aircraft noise on a sample of South African children. It was the intention of this study to examine if effects of noise on health and annoyance can be demonstrated. If so, whether such effects persist over time, or whether such effects are reversible after the cessation of exposure to noise. A cohort of 732 children with a mean age of 11.1 (range = 8-14) participated at baseline measurements in Wave 1 (2009), and 649 (mean age = 12.3; range = 9-15) and 174 (mean age = 13.3; range = 10-16) children were reassessed in Wave 2 (2010) and Wave 3 (2011) after the relocation of the airport, respectively. The findings revealed that the children who were exposed to chronic aircraft noise continued to experience significantly higher annoyance than their counterparts in all the waves at school, and only in Wave 1 and Wave 2 at home.

In flight, any aircraft will rotate about its center of gravity, a point which is the average location of the mass of the aircraft. We can define a three dimensional coordinate system through the center of gravity with each axis of this coordinate system perpendicular to the other two axes. We can then define the orientation of the aircraft by the amount of rotation of the parts of the aircraft along these principal axes. The yaw axis is perpendicular to the wings and lies in the plane of the aircraft centerline. A yaw motion is a side to side movement of the nose of the aircraft as shown in the animation. The yawing motion is being caused by the deflection of the rudder of this aircraft. The rudder is a hinged section at the rear of the vertical stabilizer. As described on the shape effects slide, changing the angle of deflection at the rear of an airfoil changes the amount of lift generated by the foil. For the vertical stabilizer and rudder, the orientation of the airfoil causes a side force ...

The name "Westland" was chosen by Mrs Petter as new land purchased as part of an expansion in 1913 at West Hendford which had been earmarked for a new foundry, but ended up becoming the centre for aircraft production.[1] As a result of the experience gained in manufacturing aircraft under licence, Westland began to design and build its own aircraft, starting with the Westland N.1B in 1917, which was followed in 1918 by the Wagtail and the Weasel.. Following the end of war, Westland produced the Limousine and Woodpigeon light aircraft for the civilian market, but most successful was the ...

Commercial aircraft passengers are exposed to atmospheric pressures ranging from the pressure found at ground level to that encountered in the external environment at 8,000 feet. There is some evidence in the medical literature that symptoms of acute mountain sickness can result from ascent to altitudes of 6,300 to 10,000 feet by unacclimated persons during the first few days following ascent, probably due to the hypoxia that results from breathing air at the reduced ambient pressures at altitude. The logical hypothesis that follows is that exposure to 8,000 feet could cause hypoxia sufficient to adversely affect the comfort and well being of some commercial aircraft passengers on prolonged flights. There is insufficient data in the literature to validate this hypothesis.. Exercise at sea level and at altitude reduces arterial oxygen levels. The logical hypothesis that follows is that the combination of moderate exercise and exposure to altitude could cause hypoxia sufficiently severe to ...

Industry Highlights:. Aircraft leasing is a technique where the airline companies procure the aircraft on lease from leasing airlines companies and other aircraft operators. Over the last few years, several airlines companies have switched to aircraft leasing for their operations to reduce the financial burden and to increase the number of aircrafts. Owing to this, the market for aircraft lessor has grown significantly. Aircraft leasing is mainly of two types: wet leasing and dry leasing. However, wet leasing aircraft are procure for shorter period of time, whereas, dry leasing is used for longer leasing period. The major buyers of the aircraft leasing are the big airlines, financial investors and others. However, these buyers mainly go for the OEMs or from the leasing companies.. As per MRFR analysis, the Aircraft Leasing Market is expected to witness a remarkable growth during the forecast period as several companies are opting for leasing of aircraft. The global aircraft leasing market is ...

Introduction Since the 1950s pressurised aircraft cabin air has been drawn unfiltered from turbine jet engines as bleed air. Therefore emissions from engine oil seals leads to contamination of the breathable cabin air. The synthetic oils include a wide range of hazardous substances including the organophosphates, and a complex pyrolysed mixture. Oil seals are reported to produce a noticeable cabin fume event in 1% of flights.1 However, to function oil seals weep lubricant at varying stages of normal engine operation,2 so there is always low level air contamination which crew and frequent flyers are cumulatively exposed to for 100 s of hours annually. Reports of adverse effects specifically related to the aircraft environment have continued since the early 1950s.3,4 Short and long-term effects, termed Aerotoxic Syndrome, primarily involve irritant, sensitising, neurological, neuropsychological, respiratory, cardiovascular and other general effects.4 ...

Posted on 04/23/2004 5:39:17 PM PDT by Shermy. SARATOV - The US Navy Department intends to subsidize the development of an advanced Russian aircraft, which will eventually be extinguishing forest fires on US territory. This UFO-shaped flying machine is currently being designed by the Saratov aviation concern. The Saratov aircraft enterprise, which is located in Russias Volga region, started assembling UFO-shaped flying machines in the 1990s; however, this R&D project was then moth-balled because of financial snags. Many aircraft companies all over the world did their best to design similar flying machines. However, Saratovs aircraft designers managed to come with some unusual engineering solutions, also building a flying-saucer mock-up. Designers managed to overcome vibration being caused by turbulence flows, after opting for the flying-saucer concept; this problem was also solved with the help of some other know-how. This flying machine is called the EKIP (Russian acronym, Ecology and ...

Yellowstone Enforcing Ban On Unmanned Aircraft Operation. This past June, due to concerns about public safety, wildlife disturbance and potential impacts to the visitor experience and park resources, the National Park Service enacted an interim policy banning the operation of unmanned aircraft.. While taking a largely educational stance during the early phases of publicizing the ban, Yellowstone rangers have developed several criminal cases involving egregious violations of this ban.. World-wide attention was drawn to an incident where an unmanned aircraft crashed into Grand Prismatic Spring the afternoon of August 2. Theodorus Van Vliet of the Netherlands crashed his unmanned aircraft into the iconic hot spring. Van Vliet, who is cooperating with the ongoing investigation, has been charged with several violations of federal law and if found guilty faces up to $5,000 in fines and/or six months in jail and/or five years on probation..

A bird strike is when a bird enters the jet engine of an aircraft; it usually damages such engine, and forces the airline to replace the engine when it happens. Usually, the aircraft is grounded until a new engine is fixed on the aircraft and tested.. A source told THISDAY that it was not only that the airlines lose huge resources on bird strikes as the engines are condemned, but oftentimes, the aircraft is grounded for days until a new engine is acquired.. On average domestic operation, a Boeing 737 generates N5million everyday it is put on air and when it is grounded for about 10 days, the airline loses about N50million.. The process of acquiring a new engine could take longer time than 10 day and the cost of the engine of Boeing B737 classic, which could still operate between 3000 to 4000 hours before overhaul is between $3 and $4 million; that of next generation aircraft like Boeing B737-800 is between $6 and $8 million.. Although the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has ...

Much of ICAOs effort to address aircraft noise over the past 40 years has been aimed at reducing noise at source. Aeroplanes and helicopters built today are required to meet the noise certification standards adopted by the Council of ICAO. These are contained in Annex 16 - Environmental Protection, Volume I - Aircraft Noise to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, while practical guidance to certificating authorities on implementation of the technical procedures of Annex 16 is contained in the Environmental Technical Manual on the use of Procedures in the Noise Certification of Aircraft (Doc 9501).. The first generation of jet-powered aeroplanes was not covered by Annex 16 and these are consequently referred to as non-noise certificated (NNC) aeroplanes (e.g. Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8). The initial standards for jet-powered aircraft designed before 1977 were included in Chapter 2 of Annex 16. The Boeing 727 and the Douglas DC-9 are examples of aircraft covered by Chapter 2. ...

As part of the September 2015 fanfare visit by Xi Xinping to the United States, the United States and China signed an arrangement on rules of behavior for safety of air-to-air encounters of military aircraft. The deal is supposed to avert aviation incidents in international airspace between military aircraft of the United States and China. In a deadly 2001 incident, for example, a Chinese F-8 fighter jet interceptor collided with a U.S. EP-3 aircraft that was operating more than 75 miles from Hainan Island, causing the loss of the Chinese aircraft and pilot, and an emergency landing in China by the U.S. surveillance aircraft. Similarly, in August 2014, a Chinese fighter jet roared over, under, and in front of a U.S. P-8 maritime patrol aircraft - coming as close as 50 feet to the American aircraft - about 135 miles east of Hainan Island. The Chinese jet climbed vertically with its underbelly showing in front of the U.S. aircraft to display its under wing combat load out ...

The 26 X 6.6 tire size evaluation includes cornering performance tests throughout the aircraft ground operational speed range for both dry and wet runway surfaces. Static test results to define 26 X 6.6 tire vertical stiffness properties are also presented and discussed ...
In the initial period after Second World War the French navy had 5 aircraft carriers, the oldest of which was constructed before the war, but their value was very limited. The French navy, in order to eliminate these older ships, thus designed these two light fleet carriers which were laid down in the mid-1950s.. Conceived before the arrival of General de Gaulle, the Clemenceau and Foch aircraft carriers made it possible to affirm the French policy of independence with regard to Atlantic Alliance and to affirm the sovereignty of France. After the Second World War already, the construction of an aircraft carrier Clemenceau, the PA-28, had been considered but the idea had been abandoned. Put on hold in November 1955, Clemenceau was launched in December 1957, entered in service in November 1961 and carried out its first sortie at sea in 1963.. These vessels incorporated all the advances in carrier design made in the immediate postwar period. They served the French Navy in both European and Pacific ...

The Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) is a ground-based network of Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) sites around the globe, where the column abundances of CO2, CH4, N2O, CO and O2 are measured. CO2 is constrained with a precision better than 0.25% (1-σ). To achieve a similarly high accuracy, calibration to World Meteorological Organization (WMO) standards is required. This paper introduces the first aircraft calibration campaign of five European TCCON sites and a mobile FTS instrument. A series of WMO standards in-situ profiles were obtained over European TCCON sites via aircraft and compared with retrievals of CO2 column amounts from the TCCON instruments. The results of the campaign show that the FTS measurements are consistently biased 1.1% ± 0.2% low with respect to WMO standards, in agreement with previous TCCON calibration campaigns. The standard a priori profile for the TCCON FTS retrievals is shown to not add a bias. The same calibration factor is generated using aircraft

Few studies have addressed the effects of mixed, low-level exposures to complex mixtures on a mans reproductive potential. In this prospective study, each subject was evaluated before first exposure and at 15 and 30 weeks after exposures had begun. A total of 50 men working on aircraft maintenance at an Air Force installation were included in the study. In addition, eight unexposed men were concu
What happens when you spend six or eight hours in an airplane with 300 other people, breathing recirculated air?. People sometimes believe theyve been made sick by flying in an airplane, but in fact its difficult to prove that anyone is any more likely to contract an infectious disease spending three hours in an airplane than spending the same three hours in any indoor space with other people.. Passengers, flight attendants, and pilots often complain about the effects the air in an airplane has on them, but those non-specific symptoms are very rarely caused by germs. In fact, the Department of Transportation and Consolidated Safety Services did several studies that found that the only organisms detected on 35 flights of eight different U.S. airlines were normal skin flora, with no respiratory pathogens at all. They even found that bacterial counts were somewhat lower than they were in public buildings.. Large commercial airliners are required by government regulation to keep pressure at the ...
Im back from vacation, and I hope you enjoyed the 72 Hour series on the Alaska Milk Run while I was gone. Now comes the hard part… to figure out what to cover considering all that happened since I went away. One thing that stood out to me was something that actually happened early in my vacation. This is a longshot, but a ruling by a federal appeals court could pave the way toward de facto legislation of seat sizes on aircraft. Those of you who support this shouldnt get your hopes up, but its still something worth following. And with any luck, it will at least result in a review of aircraft evacuation testing protocols.. Airlines have been squeezing more seats on to aircraft for years now. This process of "densification" isnt always bad, as I wrote before I left, but no matter what it means a lot more people get seated in the same size tube.. From time to time, random bills have popped up in Congress trying to prevent airlines from putting more seats onboard, but they were never going to ...
Airlines for America (A4A), Airports Council International - North America (ACI-NA), American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and Regional Airline Association (RAA) established this program to inform the public about and build on our industrys ongoing efforts to reduce pollution associated with aircraft deicing.. Aircraft deicing is essential to protecting the health and welfare of our passengers. Aircraft deicing fluids (ADF) are applied to aircraft in winter conditions to ensure they taxi and takeoff safely.. Our industry has devoted a tremendous amount of effort and invested heavily to greatly reduce any water quality impact from ADF. As the industrys principal trade associations, we have designed the Voluntary Pollution Reduction Program to build on this success. We will be documenting the adoption of the array of pollution reduction technologies across the industry, assessing the environmental benefits of those technologies and encouraging the development of new technologies. Our ...
In any aircraft journey the parts of the engine go through a complex combination of stresses and vibrations. We need to know how the inherent cracks in the metal are going to be affected," Professor Tong explained.. "The safety of aircraft depends on engineers knowing when the cracks are going to become a problem so that plans can be made to replace components during regular inspection cycles. The scheduling of these inspections critically depends on the precise knowledge of crack growth mechanisms and growth rate.". Professor Tong said the research team would use novel experimental and computational methods to create a comprehensive computer modelling program that will show in detail how the components react under stress.. The Royal Society funding will allow the Portsmouth team to join forces with materials scientists from the University of Siegen in Germany.. "We will be working with the Siegen scientists, using a powerful transmission microscope (TEM) to examine the complex dislocation ...
Airflow is a critical factor that influences air quality, airborne contaminant distribution, and disease transmission in commercial airliner cabins. The General Aircraft-cabin Air-contaminant Transport Effect (GAATE) model seeks to build exposure-spatial relationships between contaminant sources and receptors, quantify the uncertainty, and provide a platform for incorporation of data from a variet
Ice crystal larger than about 5 μm diameter were separated from interstitial particles in aircraft contrails and evaporated. Residual particles larger than 0.1 μm were analyzed by electron microscopy. Soot, metals, and volatile organic substances, apparently from the aircraft exhaust, were found. However, the residual particles also contained high percentages of minerals, thought to be crustal in origin, that were often mixed with sulfur. The percentages of particles in our samples (representing the larger residual particles from relatively large ice crystals) identified as exhaust-derived and the percentage apparently derived from the ambient aerosol were roughly equal, suggesting that ambient particles may be important in contrail formation. Possible explanations for this are presented ...
This model shows the simulation of multiple aircraft in formation flight, with emphasis on the necessary requirements and the realized benefits in making the simulation vectorized so that it can easily be updated for an arbitrary number of vehicles. To perform their avoidance task, this set of aircraft uses cooperative control.. This model uses color coding to aid in locating Aerospace Blockset™ blocks. The red blocks are Aerospace Blockset blocks, the orange blocks are subsystems that contain additional Aerospace Blockset blocks, and the white blocks are Simulink® blocks.. The simulation uses Simulink and Aerospace Blockset software, which allow for a hierarchal block diagram representation to include the control laws, vehicle models and visualization.. The MATLAB® Animation Display subsystem contains the MATLAB® Animation block from Aerospace Blockset to visualize the simulation. There are three types of bodies. The blue body is the first body in the formation. It is the target of the ...
It is not clear how the airline will enforce the anti-gum policy, but a gloved hand and a menacing "Spit it out, Comrade" from a glowering flight attendant should do the trick.. DP isnt just dealing with a gum problem though, as other guests are reportedly stealing thousands of dollars of equipment from its aircraft, including life jackets and safety instruction cards among others.. Launched last year, DP is Russias first budget airline and initially faced difficulties during its launch when EU firms from which the country had leased airplanes pulled contracts over the airlines service to Crimea.. Currently, DP is thought to be the only airline to ban the use of chewing gum.. ...
Tibore: The GE rep who said that engines routinely stop working during a flight was pulling your leg. Jet engines are very simple in their basic operation. If they stop running, such as if they stall, it is very noticeable and very loud. An engine stall is similar to an aircraft stall. The air flow into the engine stops because the pressure in front of the compressor blades is insufficient to keep air flow going inside. It makes a VERY loud bang when that happens. A stall would be very rare in a commercial aircraft. They are usually the result of extreme aircraft maneuvering with restricted intakes (such as the old A-4 skyhawk, which has engine stall problems, but the same engine in an A-6 with its bigger intakes dont have stall problems) or a mechanical problem with the engine. On most commercial aircraft, the intakes are quite open, and the plane isnt doing max performance turns ...
An automatic dependent surveillance (ADS) system for tracking aircraft includes a GPS navigation receiver for determining the position of an aircraft, a Mode S transponder for transmitting the position of the aircraft, and a Mode S receiving station for receiving the aircrafts position and for determining the position of the transmitting aircraft relative to other aircraft and the ground. The Mode S position information is broadcast as a squitter on a random time basis having a present average transmission rate, or in response to an interrogation signal from a Mode S receiving station. The Mode S receiver can be another aircraft, an en route ground station, and/or a terminal ground station. The en route ground station can include a multi-sector receiving antenna with each sector connected to a separate Mode S receiver. The terminal ground station can include an omni-directional antenna connected to a Mode S receiver. The Mode S transponder transmits a formatted message having airborne or surface
There is little question that the most sophisticated and capable collection system today is the 85000 System onboard the RIVET JOINT aircraft. The House Intelligence Committees concept would continue the incremental and continuous sensor improvement to the 85000 System with the goal of ``cross-decking it to the new aircraft in the then-current state of modification when the first aircraft is ready to accept it. This would require ``new equipment purchases for the first number of new aircraft that replace the EP-3, and the later number of aircraft would be outfitted with equipment directly transferred from the RC-135 aircraft as each is retired. The cost savings realized with this concept would be substantial over the alternative option to develop an entirely new SIGINT system. The Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) is developing a family of CDL-compatible, low-cost, light weight, digital data links for initial application to unmanned aerial vehicles. Normally the data returns with the ...

Akron, Ohio 44316. Dear Mr. Hofer:. This is in response to your letter of October 28, 1996, regarding placement of the noise dosimeter microphone for measuring the noise exposure of an employee using an airline respirator equipped with a shroud.. You informed us that the airline respirator is required for protecting the employee from carbon dioxide and dust when certain equipment is operated. In addition to these air contaminates, the job produces noise sound levels above the exposure limits. You believe you have exhausted all engineering controls based on current technology, but the noise exposure remains above the permissible limit. During your discussion about engineering controls you mentioned the noise level inside the airline respirator helmet when the airline respirator is included as an engineering control. Please be aware that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not consider an airline respirator an engineering control for either air contaminants or noise. Any ...
Boeing is my favorite airplane company. It has a very special place in my heart. The aircraft Ive flown on most in my whole life is the Boeing 737. I have always loved the 737, just because it really does its job very well every time I fly on it.. I remember when I was a kid, I had to travel to another city about every two months to visit my father. Me and my mom used an airline that flew the 737 all the time to that city. I will always remember the registration of the plane I used most often, a 737-300.. Another plane that I loved is the 747. I really hope Boeing will make a new version of that aircraft since that was a special aircraft for the world and myself.. My favorite aircraft of all time is the 777, and I especially cant wait for the 777X to come out. I like that plane because its safe, friendly to the environment, and it has the GE90 engine on it. I also especially love the 787, because its just so high-tech and very comfortable -- I have been recommending to many friends to fly ...
Probably the most serious injuries are those of the head and spinal column. There are many factors that influence whether aircrew who eject sustain a spinal fracture or not. These include: the design of the seat, aircraft speed and attitude at time of ejection and age of the patient.. It is generally accepted that radiographic evidence of vertebral fracture can be found in 30%-70% of aircrew after ejection.5, 6 To avoid excessively high acceleration rates, the ejection gun fires in three stages with a short delay between each (a few milliseconds). Individual vertebrae are able to withstand large compressive loads if applied at right angles to the plane of the intervertebral disc. However, because of engineering constraints the initial thrust is an impulsive load that is experienced at an angle to the long axis of the spine. In our case, the navigator who was severely injured was given no warning of the ejection as there was not enough time. This is called a command ejection. The ejection seat ...
Airlines start generating revenues while their aircraft are flying. Reducing aircraft turn-around times is an important goal with passenger boarding being a major metric. A simulation approach to aircraft boarding strategy was presented at AGIFORS Airline Operations conference a few years ago. The study considered a single aisle narrow body aircraft such as B 737 or A-320, where passengers board through the single front jet way. The objective of that study was to identify key performance measures such as total boarding times and number of seat and aisles interferences for popular boarding strategies such as back-to-front, window-middle-aisle and random. An optimization model was also proposed and its performance compared to other strategies was demonstrated. As the airlines started charging for bags, it appears that the boarding times are taking longer, independent of what the strategy they implement. In this study, a new technology is proposed for the above single aisle aircraft jet way, which ...

The Tupolev Tu-214SR is a Russian Special Mission Aircraft believed to act as a communication relay aircraft. This kind of aircraft is often dispatched by the Russian Air Force to accompany Putins presidential aircraft on its travels and for this reason it is considered the Russian version of the U.S. E-4B, a so-called "doomsday" plane, with an airborne command and control role. A special missions variant of the Tupolev Tu-214 commercial transport aircraft, the Tu-214SR is Russias answer to the US E-4B, an airborne command and control plane built specifically for the Russian presidents use and considered successor to the Ilyushin Il-20 Coot, which has been in service for the better part of four decades. Produced by Aviastar SP and Kazan Aircraft Production Association, the twin-engine, long-endurance jet can carry 62 passengers with comparable range and speed to a Boeing 757. Unlike the Boeing, the Tu-214SR is packed to the gills with cutting-edge sensor and communications equipment.. While ...

Balloon carriers were the first ships to deploy manned aircraft, used during the 19th and early 20th century, mainly for observation purposes. The 1903 advent of fixed wing airplanes was followed in 1910 by the first flight of such an aircraft from the deck of a US Navy cruiser. Seaplanes and seaplane tender support ships, such as HMS Engadine, followed. In the World War I Battle of Tsingtao in 1914, the Imperial Japanese Navy seaplane carrier Wakamiya conducted the worlds first naval-launched air raids[1] from Kiaochow Bay.[2] It launched four Maurice Farman seaplanes, which bombarded German communication centers and command centers and damaged a German minelayer.[3].

In recent tests on the pressures occurring on the envelope and control surfaces of the naval airship C-7, it was noted that the pressures on the nose of the airship, while flying in level circling flight, were symmetrically distributed. Such a condition can only occur when the nose of the airship is pointed directly into the wind, and to accomplish this in circling flight, the axis of the airship must then be parallel to the direction of the motion of the nose. The question was raised as to whether the same conditions occur generally on all airships in circling flight. It appears that airships flying in a constant, level, circling flight path will generally head very closely into the wind, and any deviation will be so slight that the distribution of pressure over the nose will be but slightly, if at all, changed from a symmetrical distribution.

China voiced its deep concern and opposition on Thursday to a European Union plan to counter airline emissions and called for talks to resolve the issue a day after Chinas major airlines refused to pay any carbon costs under the new law.. !ADVERTISEMENT! From January 1, all airlines using EU airports fall under the EUs Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), and could be forced to pay fines of 100 euros ($128) for each tonne of carbon dioxide emitted for which airlines have not surrendered carbon allowances.. "China opposes the European Unions unilateral legislation. China has expressed to the EU our deep concern and opposition many times on a bilateral level," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.. "We hope the EU can take careful precautions with a cautious and practical attitude, and regarding those aspects involving China, appropriately discuss and handle this matter," Hong told reporters during a regular briefing.. The scheme was launched in 2005 as one of the pillars of Europes efforts to ...

While information on aircraft noise is limited, the studies and data GAO reviewed suggest that aircraft cabin and cockpit noise levels likely do not exceed the noise exposure standard established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). None of the studies GAO reviewed, which included eight that measured noise in the cabin and four that measured noise in the cockpit, found levels that clearly exceeded the OSHA standard, though two of the studies found that noise over long durations in certain types of aircraft may reach the more restrictive exposure limit published by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). OSHA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have received few complaints from crewmembers related to aircraft noise levels. For example, since assuming authority to enforce its noise standard in the cabin, OSHA has received two complaints related to ambient aircraft noise out of more than 600 complaints related to commercial aviation. No ...

The report documents the study on a hydrogen proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) named Kenyalang-1. Common aircraft utilize internal combustion engines (ICE) as main power source for the propulsion system. However, ICE imposes negative impact towards the environment due to the pollution produced through carbon emission, initiating green house effect, global warming, and health problems. Researchers have started to develop interest on the possibilities of using alternative energies to replace ICE aircraft propulsion system. Due to the relatively new nature of the technology, there is a need for a research on the development of a ftiel cell electrical propulsion system. The objectives of this project are to design and to develop a fuel cell propulsion system that operates using a 500 W hydrogen PEM fuel cell as the main power generator for a UAV. The research is important to determine the capability of the propulsion system to power a custom designed and ...

Background Noise, or undesirable sound, is one of the most common environmental stressors, and it can cause various health effects. Beyond the auditory consequences of occupational noise exposure, extra-auditory effects such as psychological problems have also been found. The aim of the current study is to elucidate the association between occupational noise annoyance and psychological symptoms, including symptoms of depression and suicidal ideation. Methods A total of 10,020 participants (5,410 men and 4,610 women) were included in the current analysis, using data from the fourth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES). Self-report questionnaires were used to assess noise annoyance levels, depressive symptoms, and suicidal ideation. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) for psychosocial symptoms were calculated using multiple logistic regression models. Results Compared to the no noise annoyance group, ORs (95% CI) of the severe annoyance groups were 1.58
Background Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is particularly prevalent in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). OSA is not an isolated sleep disturbance: the extent of its role as a causative agent in development and progression of CVD is under investigation. The hypoxemic stress that occurs during apneas leads to systemic inflammation and studies have shown correlations in the severity of OSA and the elevation of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP). We seek to characterize the association of CRP and patients at risk for OSA as assessed by the Berlin Questionnaire (BQ) and hypothesize that a positive relationship might improve diagnosis of OSA.. Methods We evaluated 1,976 participants in the Law Enforcement Cardiac Screening Program, a subset of the World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program. Abnormal CRP is defined as CRP ,/= 2 mg/L. Subjects with a positive response in 2 of the 3 categories from the Berlin Questionnaire are considered to be at high risk for OSA. We ...
