Aging aircraft wiring: a proactive management methodology
Eaton, Donald R.
MetadataShow full item record
During the last years, military budgets have been dramatically reduced and the services have been unable to acquire sufficient new systems. Military aviation is one of the areas that have been severely impacted. The result is that the current fleet faces significant aging aircraft problems. Aircraft wiring is one of the areas that have severely affected by the aging process. Recent accidents involving aging wiring problems and reduced operational readiness due to aging wiring have made clear that aging aircraft wiring presents a difficult and complicated problem for the military aviation. However, current maintenance practices fail short in successfully inspecting and maintaining wiring. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a proactive management plan to deal with aging wiring. The objective is to come up with a systematic process in order to identify and prevent serious failures caused by electrical faults of wiring systems. This process will be based on the principle of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)
