Aircraft Fuel Systems by Martin Hewitt.
“Aircraft Fuel Systems by Martin Hewitt” integrates all aspects of fuel products and systems including fuel handling, fuel quantity gauging and fuel management for both commerical/civil, and military aircraft applications. It collates together information on fuel system design that is currently disseminated throughout literature into one easily comprehensible reference text. There are chapters on basic system functions, features and functions unique to military aircraft, fuel handling, fuel quantity gauging, fuel management, fuel system safety and fuel systems design and development. Contributions come from industry specialists. Comprehensive introduction to aircraft fuel system design Offers an all-encompassing view of aircraft fuel systems that is non-existent in current literature Includes specific fuel system design examples that illustrate the applications presented throughout.
All aspects of fuel products and systems including fuel handling, quantity gauging and management functions for both commercial (civil) and military applications.
The fuel systems on board modern aircraft are multi-functional, fully integrated complex networks. They are designed to provide a proper and reliable management of fuel resources throughout all phases of operation, notwithstanding changes in altitude or speed, as well as to monitor system functionality and advise the flight crew of any operational anomalies that may develop.
- Collates together a wealth of information on fuel system design that is currently disseminated throughout the literature.
- Authored by leading industry experts from Airbus and Parker Aerospace.
- Includes chapters on basic system functions, features and functions unique to military aircraft, fuel handling, fuel quantity gauging and management, fuel systems safety and fuel systems design and development.
- Accompanied by a companion website housing a MATLAB/SIMULINK model of a modern aircraft fuel system that allows the user to set up flight conditions, investigate the effects of equipment failures and virtually fly preset missions.
Aircraft Fuel Systems provides a timely and invaluable resource for engineers, project and programme managers in the equipment supply and application communities, as well as for graduate and postgraduate students of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
