This specification establishes the requirements for chromate conversion coatings on magnesium alloys. This process has been used typically to improve corrosion resistance and adherence of organic finishes but usage is not limited to such applications. The dichromate treatment may not be suitable for alloys with high manganese content. The chrome pickle treatment has been used as touch-up for previously dichromate-treated surfaces and for improving corrosion protection temporarily, but usages are not limited to such applications.

Abstract Transient operating conditions in electrical systems not only have significant impact on the operating behavior of individual components but indirectly affect system and component reliability and life. Specifically, transient loads can cause additional loss in the electrical conduction path consisting of windings, power electronic devices, distribution wires, etc., particularly when loads introduce high peak vs. average power ratios. The additional loss increases the operating temperatures and thermal cycling in the components, which is known to reduce their life and reliability. Further, mechanical stress caused by dynamic loading, which includes load torque cycling and high peak torque loading, increases material fatigue and thus reduces expected service life, particularly on rotating components (shaft, bearings).

Abstract Within the Russian aviation industry the necessary level of reliability risks related to the failures of aircraft mechanical parts and systems vital to the safety of flight is assured via the system of activities aimed at influencing the parameters of critical parts (CP). The goal of the system is to provide a relationship between activities aimed at prevention of dangerous failures at all phases of airplane life cycle. The system operation is regulated by the normative documents and by controlling their observance. Normative documents containing requirements and recommendations were developed about 15 years ago based on the industry experience and traditions and taking into account the requirements of AS9100 series of international standards [2] wherever possible. The documents were developed taking into account typical safety management errors outlined in [1].

Industries, organizations, and professions are reliant upon a community of competent people and individuals that possess relevant skills and knowledge for their scope of responsibility. Traditional methods of defining requisite knowledge and skills have been based on job analysis methodologies and through the development of Subject Matter Expert (SME) BoKs. While job analysis methodologies may suffice at a micro-level, they offer little value to the profession and industrial communities. Furthermore, SME developed BoKs are inherently limited to the knowledge and experience by the individuals serving as SMEs.

This FMEA Standard describes Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis in Design (DFMEA) and Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis in Manufacturing and Assembly Processes (PFMEA). It assists users in the identification and mitigation of risk by providing appropriate terms, requirements, ranking charts, and worksheets. As a Standard, this document contains requirements "must" and recommendations "should" to guide the user through the FMEA process. The FMEA process and documentation must comply with this Standard as well as any corporate policy concerning this Standard. Documented rationale and agreement with the customer is necessary for deviations in order to justify new work or changed methods during customer or third-party audit reviews.

Scope—Traditional methods of photometry rely on the use of a goniometer to rotate the test item around two axes at right angles. This method is satisfactory for most situations but has certain disadvantages: a. Point-by-point measurements with a goniometer may be slow. With more advanced requirements, particularly for headlamps, where the entire beam pattern is of concern, isocandela measurements are becoming increasingly needed. Such testing can be very time consuming. b. For production quality assurance, the speed of a goniometer may not allow testing to keep pace with the production line if a large quantity of lamps must be sampled. c. High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps are becoming commonly used. Such lamps are orientation sensitive, changing in both lumen output and intensity distribution when tilted. This can introduce significant inaccuracies in test results when testing is performed using a goniometer. There is a need for alternative test techniques which can achieve very high speed data acquisition, the capture of full isocandela distribution, and the elimination of lamp tilting.
