1 Difficult Areas For Burnthrough Implementation Difficult Areas For Burnthrough Implementation

2 2 Objective Include methods of compliance in the AC for all configurations in airplanes. Include methods of compliance in the AC for all configurations in airplanes. –Same safety standard worldwide –Same safety standard from all airframe manufacturers –Address certification issues early on

3 3 Testing Issues Testing Issues Unique Configurations Unique Configurations Summary Summary Overview

4 4 Testing Issues The Advisory Circular gives detailed instructions for testing burnthrough designs when blankets are installed between and over frames. Depending on the airplane 20% to 80% of insulation cannot match configurations currently in the AC. The Advisory Circular gives detailed instructions for testing burnthrough designs when blankets are installed between and over frames. Depending on the airplane 20% to 80% of insulation cannot match configurations currently in the AC. Minimal direction is given for unique configurations that cannot be attached as stated in the AC currently. Minimal direction is given for unique configurations that cannot be attached as stated in the AC currently. Many configurations do not fit the test apparatus. Many configurations do not fit the test apparatus.

5 5 Unique Configurations There is not an identified method to certify unique designs to the flame penetration test There is not an identified method to certify unique designs to the flame penetration test Attachments in some areas are unable to meet burnthrough requirements Attachments in some areas are unable to meet burnthrough requirements Examples Examples –Upper cheek – Main deck floor beam and frame intersection –Main Deck Entry Doors and Hatches –Blankets Surrounding Main Deck Entry Doors –Lower Lobe Cargo Doors –AOE doors and linings –Airstair door –Aft Pressure Bulkhead –Nose Bulkhead –Cargo Bulkhead –Nose wheel well bulkhead/Bilge –Over-frame support beams –Sloping sidewalls –Bilge –EE Bay Hatch and walkway

6 6 Unique Configurations Upper cheek – Main deck floor beam and frame intersection Upper cheek – Main deck floor beam and frame intersection Situation: Situation: –Not able to clamp over frames due to floor beams –No other attachment method known that meets rule –No method for testing

7 7 Unique Configurations Main Deck Entry Doors and Hatches Main Deck Entry Doors and Hatches Situation: Situation: –Contain blankets that are installed into pockets, retained with bond-on pins or hook and loop –No overlap possible – must maintain door functionality. –Cannot add holes for screw though pins Allow burnthrough materials with best design solution – no testing required Allow burnthrough materials with best design solution – no testing required

8 8 Unique Configurations Blankets Surrounding Main Deck Entry Doors Blankets Surrounding Main Deck Entry Doors Situation: Situation: –Unique structure around doorways does not allow for use of screw-through pins or clamps –Blankets are attached to structure with hook and loop –Overlap of blankets is not possible – must maintain door functionality.

9 9 Unique Configurations Lower Lobe Cargo Door Lower Lobe Cargo Door Situation: Situation: –Foam is attached to outboard side of cargo liner with adhesive. –Insulation attached to door with hook & loop –No method for testing

10 10 Unique Configurations Automatic Over-wing Exit (AOE) doors and linings Automatic Over-wing Exit (AOE) doors and linings Situation: Situation: –Unique structure around doorways does not allow for use of screw-through pins or clamps –Blankets installed on liner with double back tape.

11 11 Unique Configurations Airstair Door Airstair Door Situation: Situation: –Unique structure around doorways does not allow for use of screw-through pins or clamps –Foam pad glued to aluminum skin (shown left of door) and is attached to inboard surface of door using velcro.

12 12 Aft Pressure Bulkhead Aft Pressure Bulkhead Situation: Situation: –No frames to attach to –Stringers will burn away in less than 4 minutes leaving no method of attachment –No method for testing Unique Configurations

13 13 Unique Configurations Nose Bulkhead Nose Bulkhead Situation: Situation: –Blankets are attached using hook and loop or bond on attachments –Not able to use clamps around perimeter locations

14 14 Nose Bulkhead Nose Bulkhead Unique Configurations

15 15 Unique Configurations Cargo Bulkhead Cargo Bulkhead Situation: Situation: –Blankets are attached using hook and loop or bond on attachments –Not able to use clamps around perimeter locations

16 16 Unique Configurations Nose wheel well bulkhead/Bilge Nose wheel well bulkhead/Bilge Situation: Situation: –Unique structure does not allow for use of screw-through pins or clamps –No testing method known

17 17 Unique Configurations Over-frame support beams Over-frame support beams Situation: Situation: –Certification is undefined due to slits needed to overlap frame.

18 18 Sloping sidewall Sloping sidewall Situation: Situation: –Blankets do not overlap frame because of cargo liner attachment Allow cargo liner as part of the burnthrough configuration Allow cargo liner as part of the burnthrough configuration Unique Configurations

19 19 Unique Configurations Bilge Bilge Situation: Situation: –Blankets do not overlap frame –Airplane geometry requires splice at frame - skin intersection –Bilge frame up to 2’ deep –No method for testing

20 20 Unique Configurations EE Bay Hatch and walkway EE Bay Hatch and walkway Situation: Situation: –Unique structure around hatches does not allow for use of screw-through pins or clamps –Foam bonded or attached with velcro to interior surface of EE bay hatch and walkway

21 21 Unique Configurations Nose Wheel Well Nose Wheel Well Situation: Situation: –No method of testing large blankets in test rig –No method of testing box corners –No attachment method known for this geometry

22 22 Summary Many areas of the airplane have blanket configurations that are not depicted in the proposed scenarios of AC X Many areas of the airplane have blanket configurations that are not depicted in the proposed scenarios of AC X Many airframe designs are not depicted in the proposed AC. Methods of testing these designs and attachments are not well defined. Many airframe designs are not depicted in the proposed AC. Methods of testing these designs and attachments are not well defined. Certification method for areas not depicted in the AC is not well defined. Certification method for areas not depicted in the AC is not well defined.
