(R) Aerospace - Impulse Testing of Hydraulic Components
|Publication Date:||1 April 2013|
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines impulse test procedures that are recommended for hydraulic components.
Scope and Field of Application
This ARP is applicable to actuators, valves, pressure containers, and other similar fluid system components.
ARP1383 is not applied to the following hydraulic elements, as these are covered as follows:
a. Military hydraulic pumps - refer to AS19692
b. Hydraulic motors - refer to AS7997
c. Hydraulic hose assemblies - refer to AS603
d. Tubing and fittings - refer to AS603 and AS4265
In addition, ARP1383 is not to be applied for elements that are not directly connected to the hydraulic system, such as brake master cylinders.
This ARP is intended to cover the fatigue testing of a component as a pressure vessel - it does not cover the testing of mechanical elements of hydraulic components including levers, actuator rods and end fittings, etc.
Requirements When Invoking This Recommended Practice
When this document is referenced in a design specification as part of the requirements, additional requirements as identified in 3.3 should be specified.
