Periodic testing of SSJ 100 units completed
Specialists from the TsAGI strength complex have completed aácycle ofáperiodic tests onácontrol units ofáthe SSJ 100áŚ altitude and directional controls, made from composite materials. The work was carried out onábehalf ofáZAO Sukhoi Civil Aircraft.
The tests confirmed the inherent reliability and durability ofáthe constructions ináserial production. During the tests the controls were subjected toáaámaximum load, which they successfully withstood.
Toáperform this work, stands were built that made itápossible toátest the altitude and directional controls ináthe tail fin and stabilizer. Staff atáthe static and thermal strength scientific research department obtained data onádeflections ináconstructions during the process ofáload application and stress ofávarious zones ofáthe constructions. Remote displacement sensors were used, making itápossible toámeasure deflections ináthe construction with high accuracy. The tests confirmed the quality ofáthe units ináserial production.
Ináthe future itáisáplanned toáperiodically test control (aileron) and configuration (wing flap) units.
