Abstract:

Operation, servicing and repair of aviation equipment involves the use of various materials, working liquids, compressed gases and other substances. Their correct use makes possible an improved level of technical operation, an increased time period for service and improved reliability of aviation equipment. The book gives the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of steel, nonferrous alloys on a nickel base and on a base of hard-to-melt metals and plastics and ceramic metals which operate in washing liquids, fuel and lubricating materials etc. When using various materials it is necessary to take into account the actual operating conditions, that is, the character of load, temperature, the composition and properties of exterior media, altitude and load capacity of aircraft. Therefore, this handbook presents not only numerical data which characterize the various materials, but also recommendations on technological use and rational utilization during operation, servicing and repair of aviation equipment.
