Description / Abstract:


This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) presents a discussion of drag torques of engine accessories operating at cold temperature. Various conditions of temperature, speed, and acceleration rates are reviewed showing the merits of each method and recommending a standard test method.

1.1 Purpose:

The purpose of this Aerospace Information Report is to present a brief discussion of the drag torques of aircraft accessories operating at cold temperatures, specifically −65 °F. The parameters affecting the magnitude of torque at various speeds and acceleration rates are reviewed. In conclusion, this report establishes the difference in accessory torque characteristics that are obtained by various test procedures and recognizes the need for a standard test method.
