This six months study effort investigated the normal and abnormal operating parameters of critical for flight components found in a typical sophisticated airborne hydraulic system. The basis for this investigation was to establish the ground rules necessary to develop monitoring criteria for components used within the system. Normal operating parameters were defined and proposed limits established with respect to components, subsystem and systems. Components considered suitable for monitoring included reservoirs, pumps, accumulators, pneumatic bottles, shock struts, flight control actuators, desiccants, relief valves and other components. Fluid processing to determine particulate matter, water and chlorine could not be readily detected within the system however consideration was given to provide sampling ports at strategic locations within the system without the addition of sampling valves.
