While many automobiles and aircraft continue to utilize the combustion of fuel to power systems and create movement, there are still many onboard electronics and systems that require electrical power to function. Furthermore, electrical power may even be needed to kickstart the initial operations of an engine, making equipment like batteries essential. For a vehicle such as an aircraft, one of the most common batteries used is the lead-acid type with their large power-to-weight ratios and recharging capabilities. In this blog, we will discuss lead-acid batteries in more detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of their design and functionality.

A rotor is the rotating part of a machine, and it is often used in motors to generate electricity or thrust. As such, they frequently operate at high speeds and within a wide speed range. Rotor dynamics is the branch of engineering that studies the lateral and torsional vibration of rotating shafts. The main purpose of these studies is to predict rotor vibrations and contain them within acceptable limits to keep machinery in prime working condition. To uphold strict operational reliability standards, every element of rotor design should be based on an accurate rotor dynamics prediction. If you are interested in learning more about rotor dynamics and their use in turbomachinery, read on as we discuss some of the key things that make it such an essential form of study

Each major vehicle and machine is dependent on its smallest hardware to be effective. Sheet metal screws are common hardware that are specially designed to fasten sheet metal onto other objects or surfaces made from materials such as metal, plastic, aluminum, plywood, hard rubber, and wood. Many different types of sheet metal screws are available, but in general, most consist of a shank with sharp tips and threads to pierce solid metal and other materials. Due to this capability, they are often used in aircraft construction for fixing the aluminum sheets frequently used in aviation.

Communication is paramount when operating aircraft; thus, aviation handheld radios play a key role in every cockpit. Often called air band avionic radios, they are available in ground station, panel mount, and handheld types. While most aircraft benefit from panel mount radios, some pilots take advantage of smaller, portable handheld versions.

Anyone who has been in or around an aircraft during its operation can appreciate how loud these machines are. Although the thickness of the fuselage does a reasonable job of canceling noise for passengers, pilots must be able to communicate with a level of precision that is not compatible with the native cockpit noise level. As a result, most airlines mandate the use of headsets for pilots to effectively hear and transmit verbal messages. The market for aviation headsets is broad and diverse, with significant variability in quality and price between models. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about noise-reducing headphones for aviation.

Electrical circuits are complex electrical systems equipped with layers of sensitive components that allow them to work optimally. Within a circuit, there is a “hot” wire and a “neutral” wire, both of which work together to carry electric current under normal operating conditions. During a short circuit or electrical current malfunction, a ground wire is put in place to carry the excessive electrical charge and safely discharge it where it needs to go. In fact, grounding wires guard against unwanted power surges that can lead to electrical fires or shock.

When operating aircraft, it is essential that one understands major operating components that make flight successful, such as flaps. As different phases of flight necessitate different wing shapes, flaps are affixed along the trailing edge of wings to easily achieve this feature. Working to change the shape of the airfoils, flaps can be raised or lowered to alter a vehicle's lift and drag during takeoff and landing procedures. In this blog, to better understand the purpose of flaps, we will be diving into how they function as flight control surfaces, and how they serve to affect aircraft while airborne.

Generating renewable energy to satisfy human needs is among one of the most effective ways of not contributing the immeasurable effects we already have on the planet. Though great strides have been made in the aviation industry, there are still many ways in which we can move towards a greener approach to flying. For instance, flying aircraft powered by more sustainable fuels than petroleum has been possible since 2009, serving as the first type of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) approved by ASTM International.

Diodes are semiconductor devices with two terminals that allow current to flow in one direction. With a negligible resistance on one end and a high resistance on the other, diodes prevent current from flowing in both directions. As such, diodes work like a valve in an electrical circuit. Before outlining what diodes are and how they work, we must cover some basic terms to help you better understand the importance of diodes.

Flywheels have been used since the Industrial Revolution in machines and vehicles requiring the need for potential energy to be stored. If not functioning properly, cars would be unable to move, and manufacturing equipment could suddenly come to a halt. In this article, we will discuss how flywheels work, and under what conditions they may fail.
