|Publication Date:||1 May 2005|
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes a procedure for disposition of aircraft wheels that have been involved in accidents/incidents or have been exposed to overheat conditions or overload conditions from loss of adjacent tire pressure (paired wheels) or wheel tie bolts.
Recommendations in this document apply to main landing gear (braked) and nose landing gear aircraft wheels, manufactured from aluminum forgings or castings. The most common wheel material is 2014 or 2214 aluminum but other aluminum alloys are applicable to this document such as 2030, 7049, 7050 and 356 castings.
