AIR FORCE WEAPONS LAB KIRTLAND AFB NM
Pagination or Media Count:
This report contains detail loads and stress analyses showing that the MAU-12AA Bomb Ejector Rack is adequate for external carriage of stores on US Air Force aircraft. It was determined that carrying a 20-inch-diameter store on the 30inch shackles produces the largest stress in the components of the rack. Therefore, these conditions were used exclusively in the analysis. The load conditions for the 14-inch shackles were investigated to ensure that no critical local stress problems are produced. Determination of the allowable ultimate vertical load for these shackles is included. Stress analyses are presented for critical conditions of each component.
