Model 1400 Aircraft Sub-Scale Dynamometer


The Model 1400 Sub-Scale Aircraft Dynamometer provides an economical alternative to full-scale dynamometer testing. This dynamometer replicates the kinetic energy per unit, and other parameters, such as temperature, at the friction interface. It is used extensively in simulating the performance of carbon-carbon brakes. The Model 1400 is designed to replicate and analyze actual aircraft operating conditions at the friction interface. The precisely controlled linear loading system closely controls the unit pressure between test samples.
