Example text

Pilot valve: A float operated valve that controls the state of a separately located valve. The float may be positioned to sense a high or low fuel level condition Introduction 17 Pre-check: This is the process of verifying the integrity of the refuel shut-off system by simulating a full tank condition via fluidic or electrical means prior to actually reaching the full tank condition. g. a feed tank or collector tank). Scavenged fuel would otherwise be trapped and/or unusable. Sensing level: The level at which the pilot valve is set to operate by closing the pilot valve.

The following operational issues relate to normal aircraft operation. 1 CG Shift due to Fuel Storage An important issue associated with fuel storage tanks and particularly wing tanks is concerned with the CG shift that can occur as a result of fuel migration during changes in pitch attitude. Fuel movement associated with lateral accelerations tends to be less critical because of their transient nature. In a swept wing aircraft fuel will migrate aft during the climb phase due to the positive pitch attitude thus moving the longitudinal aircraft CG aft and reducing the aircraft static stability margin.

3 Fuel Tank Venting Commercial aircraft use what is termed an ‘Open vent system’ to connect the ullage above the fuel in each tank to the outside air. The provision of adequate fuel tank venting throughout the aircraft operational flight envelope is critical in that it allows the tanks to ‘Breathe’as the aircraft climbs and descends. Without this provision large pressure differences would develop between the ullage and outside air resulting in very large forces on the tank structure. It is impractical to accommodate these forces via the wing structural design because of the resultant weight 42 Aircraft Fuel Systems penalty; therefore the design of the vent system plays a critical role in protecting the tank structure from structural failure as the aircraft transitions between ground and cruise altitudes.
