Hook Bounce Test of the E-2A Airplane Arresting Gear 'A' Frame
NAVAL AIR DEVELOPMENT CENTER WARMINSTER PA AIR VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY DEPT
Pagination or Media Count:
A laboratory hook bounce test was performed on an E-2A arresting gear A frame to determine whether the A frame could sustain the effects of 3,000 arrested landings. A total of 6,000 simulated hook bounce cycles were applied to the A frame during the test with no structural failures. With a test scatter factor of 2, the 6,000 test cycles are equivalent to 3,000 service arrested landings.
