How "stealth" is achieved on F-117A There are four key components to the F-117A's "stealth" suite: RAM (radar absorbent material) coating internal radar-absorbent construction external LO geometry , and IR emissions control RAM Interesting incidents were observed by F-117A maintenance crews during the Gulf War. Here is a short description from At the Controls: F-117A Stealth Fighter , by Jon Lake: " The effectiveness of F-117A's RAM skin was demonstrated in an unusual manner during the Gulf War, when groundcrews started finding dead bats around the tails of hangared aircraft. The unfortunate creatures had clearly flown "full tilt" into the Black Jet's tailfins, which their high frequency 'sonar' had been unable to detect. " The story of "dead bats" in fact has nothing to do with the F-117A's "stealthy" properties. Bats use ultrasonic signals for echolocation: these are mechanical compression waves not electromagnetic waves, as in case with radars, and have certainly nothing to do with the radar absorbent paint or any geometrical properties of the F-117A. The ultrasonic signals emitted by bats are narrow and highly directional and will reflect from most surfaces, RAM or no RAM. To explain the "dead bats" phenomenon we only need to remember that the F-117As use highly toxic paint and that the aircraft were stored in hot hangars with restricted ventilation. If the maintenance crews have spent as much time in these hangars as bats did, the bodies of bats would not have been the only dead bodies found around F-117As.

Without circularization, complicated statistical tools rather than simple geometry would be required to estimate access to sun reflections at the aircraft.

84. NLR Free Flight Project '97 - Conceptual Design
Independent of the navigation performance of both aircraft, the geometry of the conflict will look the same on the displays of both aircraft involved.
Conflict Detection
Some characteristics of the NLR conflict detection module are listed below:
  • No intent information. Predictive ASAS (PASAS). Together with PASAS it might even be safer to not use intent information! A more detailed discussion on conflict detection and also the use of intent information can be found at this page. Common navigation data ensures a consistent conflict detection. The conflict is calculated based on position and velocity data transmitted via ADS-B by each aircraft. Independent of the navigation performance of both aircraft, the geometry of the conflict will look the same on the displays of both aircraft involved. This geometry is used by the resolution advisory module in deciding upon the direction of the resolution maneuvers. This common picture of the conflict ensures co-operative maneuvering without the need for negotiation. Look-ahead time was set at five minutes, based on the results of off-line traffic simulations with the traffic manager program. Any predicted loss of separation within this look-ahead time is handled as a potential conflict (see the part on filters below). This means there is no spatial alert zone around the protected zone in this concept. The look-ahead time can be regarded as a time based implementation of the alert zone. Separation minima are based on RVSM standards currently used by ATC: 5 nautical miles horizontally and 1000 ft vertically. The remarks of the pilots who participated in the simulator trials suggest these values could be decreased without decreasing the

American Society for Engineering Education 1997 Annual Conference Session 1620 Aircraft Landing Gear Simulation and Analysis Derek Morrison, Gregory Neff and Mohammad Zahraee Abstract A computer aided graphical synthesis was undertaken to understand the kinematics of a nose wheel landing gear mechanism such as that on the Lockheed F-16 using Working Model software. The mobility of the design was verified by computer animation. To contrast the nose gear kinematic simulation, the main landing gear located under the wing of a light weight aircraft such as the Berkut (Ber-koot) was also studied. The Berkut is the product of Experimental Aviation, Inc. (E.A.I) located in Santa Monica, California. This plane was selected because it is representative of the growing market of kit and light weight general aviation aircraft in the 1,000 to 2,000 pound weight range. In this weight class, the Solid-Spring landing gear can be used instead of the oleoshock-strut type used in the F-16. Computer modeling and finite element analysis are explored to analyze stresses developed while landing at normal sink rates.

Structural fatigue can be combated to such an extent that a fuselage built to fly for 200 years is feasible - as opposed to the 30-40 year design life of current models in production. According to a 1997 paper by Boeing's John Hart-Smith, the difference is in the details. He focused on fuselage riveted lap splices and believes that they can be built to serve safely through 4,000,000 flights - roughly equivalent to 200 years of service. Hart-Smith pointed out that most of the attention in aircraft structural durability focuses on prolonging the last 10 percent of the life of the aircraft, once fatigue cracks have grown to the point where they're detectable. His focus, and that of co-author Richard Muller, was on extending the first 90 percent of the aircraft's life. The abstract of the two engineers' paper captures the essence of their approach: "New test data [show the] benefits to fuselage lap splices from proper rivet installation under controlled high squeeze force. Higher squeeze force alone is shown to raise the fatigue life of a conventional 3-row countersunkrivet lap splice from no more than 100,000 cycles to failure with today's installation standards to almost 500,000 cycles to failure, at the same stress level ... with exactly the same rivets and joint geometry.

Fixed-wing aircraft
Fixed-wing aircraft is a term used to refer to monoplanes, biplanes and triplanes , in fact all conventional aircraft that are neither balloons airships autogyros helicopters or tilt-rotors . The term embraces a minority of aircraft that have folding wings, intended to fold when on the ground, perhaps to ease stowage or facilitate transport on, for example, a vehicle trailer or the powered lift connecting the hangar deck of an aircraft carrier to its flight deck. It also embraces an even smaller number of aircraft, such as the General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark and the Panavia Tornado, that can fold their wings during flight. In the early days of their development, these were termed "variable geometry" aircraft. When the wings of these aircraft are fully swept, usually for high speed cruise, the trailing edges of their wings abut the leading edges of their tailplanes, giving an impression of a single delta wing if viewed from above or below. Sir George Cayley , the inventor of the science of aerodynamics , was building and flying models of fixed wing aircraft as early as , and he built a successful passenger-carrying glider in , but the first practical self-powered airplanes were designed and constructed by the Wright brothers . Their first successful test flights were in , and by the Flyer III was capable of fully-controllable stable flight for substantial periods. Strictly, its wings were not completely fixed, as it depended for stability on a flexing mechanism named

In Euclidean geometry, a circle is the set of all points in a plane at a fixed distance, called the radius , from a fixed point, called the centre . Circles are simple closed curves, dividing the plane into an interior and exterior. Sometimes the word circle is used to mean the interior, with the circle itself called the circumference. More usually, the circumference means the length of the circle, and the interior of the circle is called a disk

From experience, or possibly intuitively, people characterize space by certain fundamental qualities, which are termed axioms in geometry. Such axioms are insusceptible of proof, but can be used in conjunction with mathematical definitions for points, straight lines, curves, surfaces, and solids to draw logical conclusions.

It was largely superseded by the more advanced DirectX libraries. For some other uses of the word "wing" please see Wing (disambiguation)
Definitions and Use
A wing is a surface used to produce an aerodynamic force normal to the direction of motion by travelling in air or another gaseous medium. The first use of the word was for the foremost limbs of birds, but has been extended to include other animal limbs and man-made devices.
