An overhead luggage compartment for airplanes, comprising a stationary luggage compartment element which can be secured to a structural element and comprising a movable luggage compartment element which can be loaded with a piece of luggage, said compartments being connected together by a joint such that the movable luggage compartment element can be pivoted between an open position and a closed position. The overhead luggage compartment may comprise a device for holding the movable luggage compartment element in the open position, said device having a force transmission element which is connected to the joint between the stationary luggage compartment element and the movable luggage compartment element.


Device (4) for spaced apart connection of a structural element (1), in particular made from a fiber-reinforced plastic composite material, with a holding element (5) by means of a connection screw (7), with a distance compensation element (8) having a longitudinal bore (9) for the passage of the connection screw (7), and with an entraining element (16) arranged in the longitudinal bore (9), which can be connected to the connection screw (7) by means of a friction fit, so that the distance compensation element (8) can be transferred into an abutment position bridging the distance between the structural element (1) and the holding element (5) by screwing in of the connection screw (7), wherein the distance compensation element (8) is connected to an insertion part (11) via a screw connection (10), which part comprises a fastening section (12) that can be arranged within the structural element (1) for bonding with the structural element (1).


The invention relates to a casing for an aircraft engine, in particular a bypass pipe or fan casing, consisting of a plurality of hardened prepreg plies in which the fibers are oriented differently, and to a method for producing a casing of said type. In order to improve the resistance properties of the casing, especially in fire resistance tests, and reduce the amount of wasted prepreg material, at least one reinforcement ply is provided that consists of a prepreg strip having several windings, and the prepreg strip of each reinforcement ply includes a lateral overlapping portion.


The invention relates to a casing (1) for an aircraft engine (2), in particular a bypass pipe or fan casing, consisting of a plurality of hardened prepreg plies (3) in which the fibers (9) are oriented differently, and to a method for producing a casing (1) of said type. In order to improve the resistance properties of the casing (1), especially in fire resistance tests, and reduce the amount of wasted prepreg material, at least one reinforcement ply (5) is provided that consists of a prepreg strip (6) having several windings, and the prepreg strip (6) of each reinforcement ply (5) includes a lateral overlapping portion (7).

The invention relates to a fan case (1) for an aircraft engine (2) in the region of the fan (3) thereof, comprising a plurality of substantially cylindrically arranged fiber-reinforced plastic layers that are joined together; a reinforcement ply (6) made of glass fiber-reinforced plastic is disposed between an inner layer (4) and an outer layer (5). According to the invention, the reinforcement ply (6) consists of at least 20 plies of glass fiber-reinforced plastic, and deformation layers (7) are disposed on both sides of the reinforcement ply (6), said deformation layers (7) being less strong than the reinforcement ply (6).


The invention relates to an overhead luggage compartment (1) for airplanes, comprising a stationary luggage compartment element (2) which can be secured to a structural element and comprising a movable luggage compartment element (3) which can be loaded with a piece of luggage, said compartments being connected together by a joint (4) such that the movable luggage compartment element (3) can be pivoted between an open position and a closed position. The overhead luggage compartment also comprises a device (10) for holding the movable luggage compartment element (3) in the open position, said device having a force transmission element (11) which is connected to the joint (4) between the stationary luggage compartment element (2) and the movable luggage compartment element (3). In the open position of the movable luggage compartment element (3), the joint (4) can be moved depending on the load state of the movable luggage compartment element (3), wherein when the movable luggage compartment element (3) is in the open position, the force transmission element (11) is arranged in an active position in the unloaded state and in an inactive position in the loaded state by means of a movement of the joint (4). In the active position of the force transmission element (11), a holding torque is exerted which counteracts the pivot of the movable luggage compartment element (3) from the open position in the direction of the closed position.

The invention relates to a control surface element (4) for an airplane, in particular a spoiler, comprising a composite fiber element (3) that has a surface (8) around which air flows, a mounting device (5) for movably mounting the composite fiber element (3) on a structural component, and a reinforcing structure (9) for reinforcing the composite fiber element (3). The reinforcing structure (9) has at least one reinforcing element which is integrally formed with the composite fiber element (3). The reinforcing structure (9) has a primary reinforcing element (10) which is designed to receive main loads and which is connected to at least one secondary reinforcing element (11; 11, 11) that is designed to receive secondary loads. The composite fiber element (3) has a recess (15) for integrally forming the primary reinforcing element (10).


A device for a spaced apart connection of a structural element, in particular made from a fiber-reinforced plastic composite material, with a holding element by means of a connection screw, with a distance compensation element comprising a longitudinal bore for the passage of the connection screw, and with an entraining element arranged in the longitudinal bore, which entraining element can be connected to the connection screw by means of a friction fit, so that the distance compensation element can be transferred into an abutment position bridging the distance between the structural element and the holding element by screwing in of the connection screw, wherein the distance compensation element is connected to an insertion part via a screw connection, which insertion part comprises a fastening section that can be arranged within the structural element for bonding with the structural element.

An overhead luggage compartment for aircraft can be constructed as a fixed luggage compartment with a stationary housing and a pivotable flap, or as a lowerable luggage compartment with a lowerable tray, a stationary part having side walls and a movable part which is pivotable between a closed and an open position and has a closure element for retaining the movable part in the closed position. Those parts define a luggage-receiving space. Two fastening devices for fastening to a supporting structure of the aircraft on the side walls of the stationary part are disposed on the stationary part. At least one further fastening device is disposed in the region of the lower side of the rear side of the stationary part. The fastening devices are the same for the fixed luggage compartment and for the lowerable luggage compartment.
