INVESTlGATION OF OPERATIONAL FAILSAFE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SAILPTANE LAK12 "LIETUVA"
Keywords:Materials, Design, Maintenance, Safe
AbstractThe pper presents operational survivability characteristic investigation methods adopted for parts made of composite materials in the certification of the LAK- 12 "Lietuva" sailplane. Rated conditions, quality control and maintainability characteristics have been determined. The paper includes the full-scale sailplane component survivability test results. Operational survivability characteristics of the CM parts determined by way of theoretical and experimental investigation provide the specified in-service safety level of the LAK-12 "Lietuva" sailplane during its service life.
