Aircrafts Join Hands with Technology
Technology has added another facet of ingenious techniques and swiftness to every electrical device and piece of machinery existing in the world. This includes heavy duty aircrafts and naval ships. The technique behind building airplanes has evolved slowly since the first aircraft took flight.
Besides, various dimensions have changed and been introduced in the past years. Be it the hospitality in airplanes, where the Air Flight Attendant manages to take care of your needs throughout the journey- from the beginning to the end; or the procedures which comprises the arrival and departure, immigration and even welcoming passengers at the airport. Minute changes in technology over a continuum of time have made a difference, evolving the history of aircrafts and the way they are commercially as well as industrially employed- adding another page to it.
Change is Constant – As Aircrafts Modify
With the emergence of innovative techniques and procedures, the expectation for aircraft modification sees a chance. There are various parts and fragments of the aircraft which could evolve with contemporary techniques; by encompassing new roles, prerequisites, and new configurations.
1. Propulsion: The progress has been remarkable in this area with larger turbines that are continuing to improve with better technology in aircraft engineering. Also, high in efficiency and comparatively low in cost, there is a growing interest in low noise engines for the aircrafts. Be it - regional jets, supersonic transports or commuters.
2. Curbing the flow: With the evolving technology, aerodynamics is also undergoing progressive and advanced changes. Using the concepts of synthetic jets or MEMS devices and also the controlling the flow of aerodynamics, can help in the research of aerodynamics.
3. Concept of Airfoil: A large amount has hanged in the past few decades with respect to Airfoils. There has been a tremendous transition from the conventional peak like sections to the more recent ones that are much more contemporary and aggressive.
4. Active Control: In order to maneuver and control the aircrafts, several ways were experimented. Recently, more advanced applications have been used on the Airbus 777 aircraft for increasing stability. Reducing structural loads allows lower induced drags. A 10% reduction in manipulating a bending load can be turned into a 3% span increase without increasing its wing weight. This makes up, a 6% reduction in induced drag.
5. Structures and New Configurations: A variety of new structures and designs are emerging and are trying to be implied. Along with structures and design, new configurations are also being explored and researched upon.
• Blended Wing Body
• Joined Wing
• Oblique Flying Wing and some others.
Such changes tend to improve the aircrafts in efficiency, quality and technology. The improvements would transform the aerodynamics to another level.
If the aircrafts undergo all these improvisations, the designs and structures would add appeal; and the efficiency and quality would augment growth and captivate more usage rate. However, with evolution of aviation regulations and laws, these changes could expedite.
