[R H Stone; Langley Research Center.; Lockheed-California Company.]. Nov 01,  · The ailerons are used to bank the aircraft; to cause one wing tip to move up and the other wing tip to move down.

The banking creates an unbalanced side force component of the large wing lift force which causes the aircraft's flight path to curve. (Airplanes turn because of banking created by the ailerons, not because of a rudder input. Advanced turboprop transport aircraft The initial propfan aircraft system studies were performed by Boeing, Douglas, and Lockheed in the NASA funded studies on Reducing the Energy of the Commercial Air Transportation (RECAT) system reported in () Results from these studies are shown in Figs 10 and Cited by: 8.

An aileron (French for "little wing" or "fin") is a hinged flight control surface usually forming part of the trailing edge of each wing of a fixed-wing aircraft. Honeycomb sandwich structures are widely used on aircraft flight control surfaces such as rudder, aileron, spoiler, and flap.

The facesheet of honeycomb sandwiches are typically thin composite laminates and the interior of the sandwich is mostly honeycomb cell walls made of.

The Lockheed L TriStar, commonly referred to as the L (pronounced "L-ten-eleven") or TriStar, is an American medium-to-long-range, wide-body trijet airliner by Lockheed Corporation.

It was the third wide-body airliner to enter commercial operations, after the Boeing and the McDonnell Douglas DCComponents, summarized in tablewere designed, certified, and used in airline service. These flight-service programs were critical in developing design methods and in building confidence in composite applications.

A summary of flight-service and long-term exposure tests has been recently published (Dexter and Baker, ).Consideration of aircraft operations, including inspection, maintenance, and repair procedures is crucial in the development and application of new materials and structures.

This part of the committee's report focuses on the operation and monitoring of materials and structures in a service.
