Model 1400 Aerospace Sample Dynamometer


The Model 1400 Aerospace Sample Dynamometer (Model 1400) is a sub-scale system designed to replicate and analyze actual aircraft operating conditions. It also replicates and analyzes the friction interface of carbon-carbon brake material. This machine uses scaled test samples and inertia to predict performance of a full-size brake. The linear loading system closely controls the pressure between the test samples. This dynamometer performs performance and wear testing in a controlled environment.
The Model 1400 reproduces the kinetic energy, and other parameters, such as temperature, at the friction interface and is used extensively to simulate the performance of carbon-carbon brakes.
