This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) documents a common understanding of terms, compliance issues, and occupant injury criteria to facilitate the design and certification of oblique facing passenger seat installations specific to Part 25 aircraft. The applicability of the criteria listed in this current release is limited to seats with an occupant facing direction greater than 18° and no greater than 45° relative to the aircraft longitudinal axis. Seats installed at angles greater than 30° relative to the aircraft longitudinal axis must have an energy absorbing rest or shoulder harness and must satisfy the criteria listed in Table 2. Later revisions are intended to provide criteria for other facing directions. Performance criteria for forward and aft facing seats are provided in AS8049 and for side facing seats in AS8049/1.

ARP1420C
The turbine-engine inlet flow distortion methodology addressed in this document applies only to the effects of inlet total-pressure distortion. Practices employed to quantify these effects continue to develop and, therefore, periodic updates are anticipated. The effects of other forms of distortion on flow stability and performance, and of any distortion on aeroelastic stability are not addressed. The guidelines can be used as necessary to create a development method to minimize the risk of inlet/engine compatibility problems. The degree to which guidelines for descriptor use, assessment techniques, and testing outlined in this document are applied to a specific program should be consistent with the expected severity of the compatibility problem.

The aerospace industry is facing some of its biggest challenges to date. Chief among these are range and endurance limitations, restricted flight envelopes caused by thermal constraints, increasing power demands, and power compatibility issues. Unlike past challenges, these are too complex to solve at just the component level, and a subsystem and/or air vehicle level analysis is necessary. An important tool utilized by aerospace community for this is modeling, simulation, analysis, and testing (MSAT). Unfortunately, there are as many modeling methods as there are model users. Thus, a set of modeling standards and guidelines is necessary in order to facilitate the interconnection and compatibility of electric power system models across industry. This document, the Dynamic Modeling and Simulation (DyMAS) Aerospace Recommended Practice, provides this.

The development of future more-and full-electric aircraft concepts has significantly impacted aircraft electric power system (EPS) design. Finalizing the EPS architectures involves extensive modeling and simulation activities to ensure the required characteristics of the entire EPS prior to the physical implementation. Hence, the development of accurate, effective and computational time-saving simulation models is of great importance. Correspondingly, there is a need to establish an EPS-specific modeling and simulations common framework to ensure effective and accurate solutions to the problems addressed. The document continues a series of AE-7M documents specific for aircraft electrical systems aiming to establish such a framework (the series has started with AIR 6326 "Aircraft Electrical Power Systems. Modeling and Simulation. Definitions" issued in August, 2015).

This SAE Recommended Practice provides guidelines for procedures and practices used to obtain and record measurements and to analyze the results of the critical speed method. It is for use at accident sites using manual or electronic measurements. The method allows for many unique factors and the recommended procedure will permit a consistent use of the method in order to reduce errors and uncertainty in the results. The results from the critical speed formula should always, when possible, be compared to other accident reconstruction methodologies. When different accident reconstruction methods are used, the uncertainty of each method should be analyzed and presented.

This is a recommended practice for an interface to supplier simulations that utilize traditional interprocess communication (IPC) methods of shared memory and semaphore communications. These IPC methods are fairly standard practice in the computer science world, that allow for communication by separate processes running on a computer without any common runtime requirements of each process being run. So 32bit applications can talk with 64 bit applications as well as any other compiler or runtime dependency being needed by the calling program to interface with the called system. This also allows the calling program and the called program to be run on separate CPUs to allow parallel execution of the called program as well as multiple instances of the called program to execute all on separate processors.

The SAE Aerospace Standard document AS681 is the parent document of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP). AS681 applies to Engine programs written to conform to this document. This ARP specifies a set of functions and their expected behaviors that constitute a function based Application Program Interface (API) for gas turbine engine customer programs. The functions specified in this API are delivered by the Supplier as part of the Engine model. This document defines generic language independent functions and specific appendices for implementations in C and Fortran. The function based API specified in this ARP represents an alternative to the Fortran COMMON block structure, as specified in AS4191, historically used to communicate with an engine program. The customer may request emulation of the AS4191 interface if desired.

The Physics-of-Failure (PoF) is a science-based approach to reliability that uses modeling and simulation to design-in reliability. This approach models the root causes of failures such as fatigue, fracture, wear, and corrosion. Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools have been developed to address various loads, stresses, failure mechanisms and sites. PoF uses knowledge of basic failure processes to prevent failures through robust design and manufacturing practices, and aims to: - Design-in reliability up front; - Eliminate failures prior to testing; - Increase fielded reliability; - Promote rapid, cost effective deployment of Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS); - Improve diagnostic and prognostic techniques and processes; and, - Decrease operational and support costs. This guide provides a high level overview of the methodology, process and advantages to performing a PoF assessment.

This document reviews the state of the art for data scaling issues associated with air induction system development for turbine-engine-powered aircraft. In particular, the document addresses issues with obtaining high quality aerodynamic data when testing inlets. These data are used in performance and inlet-engine compatibility analyses. Examples of such data are: inlet recovery, inlet turbulence, and steady-state and dynamic total-pressure inlet distortion indices. Achieving full-scale inlet/engine compatibility requires a deep understanding of three areas: 1) geometric scaling fidelity (referred to here as just “scaling”), 2) impact of Reynolds number, and 3) ground and flight-test techniques (including relevant environment simulation, data acquisition, and data reduction practices).

With many corporations and suppliers conducting development and validation tests at different Climatic Wind Tunnel sites, there is an increasing need for a recommended best practice that defines a process by which climatic wind tunnels can be correlated. This document addresses the test methods and metrics used to obtain similar results, independent of location, for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and Powertrain Cooling (PTC) development. This document should be used as a guideline to make sure key aspects of tunnel testing are covered when comparing various climatic wind tunnel facilities. The depth of the correlation program is ultimately influenced by program objectives. Therefore a correlation program, for the intent and purposes of this document, can range from just a few tests to a full analysis that involves multiple vehicle tests identifying limitations and statistical boundaries.
