Planning of Non-Routine Work for Aircraft Scheduled Maintenance

This paper discusses a process for non-routine maintenance work on aircrafts developed by a graduate class in the Aviation Technology Department at Purdue University. This futuristic process of the non-routine system shows promise for reducing cycle time and improving the standardization of work in the area of aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO). By "comparing the existing non-routine...

Pump System Analysis and Sizing

This book, written by Jacques Chaurette, describes how pressure can be determined anywhere within a pump system. As explained by Chaurette: "The inlet and outlet of a pump are two locations where pressure is of special interest. The difference in pressure head between these two points is known as the Total Head. A system equation will be developed based on fundamental principles from which the...
