The introduction of porosity into ferroelectric ceramics has been of great interest in recent years. In particular, studies of porous lead-zirconate- titanate ceramic (PZT) have been made. In the research reported, samples of Ferroperm Pz27 with porosities of 20, 25 and 30% were studied. Very complete measurements were made of all of the physical properties relevant for ferroelectric applications including thermal conductivity and diffusivity, heat capacity, dielectric, pyroelectric, piezoelectric and elastic properties. Scanning electron micrographs indicated a change from 3-0 to 3-3 connectivity with increasing porosity. Although most of the physical properties are degraded by the presence of porosity, both piezoelectric and pyroelectric figures-of-merit are improved because of the markedly reduced relative permittivity. Porous ferroelectric ceramics are very promising materials for a number of applications. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.

Active clearance control within the turbine section of gas turbine engines presents and opportunity within aerospace and industrial applications to improve operating efficiencies and the life of downstream components. Open loop clearance control is currently employed during the development of all new large core aerospace engines; however, the ability to measure the gap between the blades and the case and close down the clearance further presents as opportunity to gain even greater efficiencies. The turbine area is one of the harshest environments for long term placement of a sensor in addition to the extreme accuracy requirements required to enable closed loop clearance control. This paper gives an overview of the challenges of clearance measurements within the turbine as well as discusses the latest developments of a microwave sensor designed for this application. © 2014 SPIE.

As the commercial aerospace sector continues to grow at an astonishing rate, advances in sensing technology are keeping pace. One such advance being incorporated into airframe systems is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) which provides continuous, real-time pressure monitoring in the harsh environment seen in aircraft landing gears. This capability translates to money saved in low lifecycle cost; minimal maintenance downtime; fuel savings during taxiing, take-off and landing; and increased life of the tire. Additionally, passenger comfort and safety is ensured with proper tire inflation levels. Accordingly, improved performance and increased reliability demands are being imposed on the pressure transducer, which is the centerpiece of TPMS. But the pressure transducer's contribution to reliable, real-time pressure monitoring over multiple years of operation is predicated upon the inherent long-term stability it must possess. The mechanism (or "heart") of the pressure transducer is the silicon Micro Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) element itself. Furthermore, it is at this fundamental level where the long-term stability is established and needs to be quantifiably measured. In order to establish direct physical insight into the mechanism of long-term stability, an innovative High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) chamber has been designed and manufactured to permit testing of the silicon MEMS element itself through a process of mechanically "floating" the silicon MEMS element while simultaneously subjecting it to the extreme environment of pressure (3447 kPa) and temperature (260°C) seen in aircraft landing gear. The HPHT chamber is scalable to permit multiple specimens to be tested at one time - both at the silicon MEMS element level as well as higher assembly levels - so that reasonable conclusions can be drawn about long-term stability from a statistically significant data population. The HPHT chamber, an ideal platform offering multiple levels of configurability for performing long-term stability measurements of pressure transducers, is presented.

Pushed by digital systems development and the pressure to reduce costs, in the last 40 years health monitoring (Hm) capabilities evolved from simple Built In Tests to system health prognostics, causing the development of new maintenance and operation concepts and new business models. Hm functions allow business growth by maximizing availability, optimizing the logistics, improving productivity and reducing maintenance costs and nowadays they have assumed a central role in aviation business. This role has to be captured by Hm system providers in order to fully exploit the opportunities provided by the market. To define Hm requirements is a very complex task as it necessitates considering many complex interrelated aspects such as costs reduction, concept of operations and business models. Nevertheless very little guidance exists about Hm requirements capture and this gap represents one of the main blockers to the diffusion of Hm systems. This work will then try defining a structured way to produce good Hm high level requirements. House of Quality (HoQ) has been identified as a structured but flexible methodology, which allows taking into account all the complexity of Hm and integrating business, maintenance and operational aspects. The research guideline for the design of the Hm HoQ matrices is based on the understanding of the economic value created by Hm and on the results of the total life asset cost analysis. The use of the proposed method has been demonstrated and validated through case studies where the high level Hm requirements for a metering valve and a landing gear monitoring system have been investigated. The results obtained in this phase proved that the methodology is credible as it confirmed some of the conclusions previously obtained by using traditional approaches; in addition to this new aspects are brought into consideration, making the requirements definition process more complete. © 2014 IEEE.

Advancements in the aerospace, defense and energy markets are being made possible by increasingly more sophisticated systems and sub-systems which rely upon critical information to be conveyed from the physical environment being monitored through ever more specialized, extreme environment sensing components. One sensing parameter of particular interest is dynamic pressure measurement. Crossing the boundary of all three markets (i.e. aerospace, defense and energy) is dynamic pressure sensing which is used in research and development of gas turbine technology, and subsequently embedded into a control loop used for long-term monitoring. Applications include quantifying the effects of aircraft boundary layer ingestion into the engine inlet to provide a reliable and robust design. Another application includes optimization of combustor dynamics by "listening" to the acoustic signature so that fuel-to-air mixture can be adjusted in real-time to provide cost operating efficiencies and reduced NOx emissions. With the vast majority of pressure sensors supplied today being calibrated either statically or "quasi" statically, the dynamic response characterization of the frequency dependent sensitivity (i.e. transfer function) of the pressure sensor is noticeably absent. The shock tube has been shown to be an efficient vehicle to provide frequency response of pressure sensors from extremely high frequencies down to 500 Hz. Recent development activity has lowered this starting frequency; thereby augmenting the calibration bandwidth with increased frequency resolution so that as the pressure sensor is used in an actual test application, more understanding of the physical measurement can be ascertained by the end-user. © 2015 SPIE.

Meggitt Sensing Systems (formerly Endevco) pioneered the commercialization of a shock tube calibration system by taking an established laboratory tool capable of imparting near-instantaneous pressure stimulus and incorporating this capability into active product development for the purpose of providing quantifiable frequency response of pressure transducers. These activities commenced in 1996 in a cooperative effort with Texas Christian University, and results were reported extensively through 1998. After 15 years of successful new product introduction, empirical data has been used to model more accurately the 1-D compressible gas dynamics occurring within the shock tube so that the time interval of the reflected shock-the most critical parameter in determining the transfer function for the pressure transducer under test-can be optimized for varying amplitudes. The existing Meggitt Sensing Systems shock tube (102 mm diameter × 3.7 m length) operates up to a pressure of 6895 kilopascal gauge (kPag) and sustains up to 8 ms reflected shocks. Recent modelling suggests that these parameters can double. Accordingly, effort is currently under way to bring this enhanced capability to the marketplace, offering both increased performance and ease of user operation.

The need to quantify and to improve long-term stability of pressure transducers is a persistent requirement from the aerospace sector. Specifically, the incorporation of real-time pressure monitoring in aircraft landing gear, as exemplified in Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), has placed greater demand on the pressure transducer for improved performance and increased reliability which is manifested in low lifecycle cost and minimal maintenance downtime through fuel savings and increased life of the tire. Piezoresistive (PR) silicon MEMS pressure transducers are the primary choice as a transduction method for this measurement owing to their ability to be designed for the harsh environment seen in aircraft landing gear. However, these pressure transducers are only as valuable as the long-term stability they possess to ensure reliable, real-time monitoring over tens of years. The "heart" of the pressure transducer is the silicon MEMS element, and it is at this basic level where the long-term stability is established and needs to be quantified. A novel High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) vessel has been designed and constructed to facilitate this critical measurement of the silicon MEMS element directly through a process of mechanically "floating" the silicon MEMS element while being subjected to the extreme environments of pressure and temperature, simultaneously. Furthermore, the HPHT vessel is scalable to permit up to fifty specimens to be tested at one time to provide a statistically significant data population on which to draw reasonable conclusions on long-term stability. With the knowledge gained on the silicon MEMS element, higher level assembly to the pressure transducer envelope package can also be quantified as to the build-effects contribution to long-term stability in the same HPHT vessel due to its accommodating size. Accordingly, a HPHT vessel offering multiple levels of configurability and robustness in data measurement is presented, along with 10 year long-term stability results. © 2014 SPIE.

The need for reliable dynamic calibration of pressure transducers is becoming increasingly more important, especially with growing demands for improved performance, increased reliability and efficient energy generation from the aerospace, defense and energy sectors - all while being mindful of low lifecycle cost, minimizing maintenance downtime and reducing any negative impact to the environment. State of the art piezoelectric (PE) and piezoresistive (PR) silicon MEMS pressure transducers specifically designed for harsh environments are answering the call to provide the necessary measurements for applications such as high temperature gas turbine engine health monitoring (both in-flight and land/marine based aero-derivative), high pressure blast studies/ordnance explosion optimization, low profile wind tunnel testing/flight testing, etc. However, these pressure transducers are only as valuable as the dynamic calibration they possess so that more understanding of the physical measurement can be ascertained by the end-user. The shock tube is an established laboratory tool capable of imparting near instantaneous pressure stimulus for the purpose of providing quantifiable dynamic calibration of pressure transducers. From a performance perspective, a vast amount of empirical data has been collected over fifteen years and used to model more accurately the one-dimensional gas dynamics occurring within a shock tube so that the time interval of the reflected shock - the most critical parameter in determining the transfer function for the pressure transducer under test - can be optimized for the largest frequency bandwidth over varying shock amplitudes. Accordingly, an introduction of an improved shock tube system offering both increased performance and ease of user operation is presented. © 2013 SPIE.
