Abstract:

The report describes the initial development of an aircraft hydraulic system circuit breaker for protection against major system leakage in the event of airplane damage. The circuit breaker compares supply and return flows, and all its functions are controlled by hydraulic fluidics. Successful circuit shutdowns were demonstrated, and recommendations are made to bring the unit to flight status. Author
