Rudder Bias Actuator Test Stand 08 September 20xx Introduction Background Information: By definition, Bias is an inclination to present or hold a partial perspective at the expense of alternatives. Applied to a rudder actuator, one can interpret the system’s intended function. The rudder, usually mechanically controlled by pilot and copilot pedals, is used to produce a change in the side force inflicted by the vertical tail. Ultimately this controls the yaw of the aircraft. The rudder bias actuator is usually connected in parallel to the rudder control system. “Actuated by the differential bleed pressure acting on the faces of the internal pistons during asymmetric thrust condition” (G200 Flight Control Manual), this system attempts to automatically adjust the rudder input to account for a loss in thrust from one side of the aircraft. During normal aircraft operation symmetrical thrust from both sides of the aircraft provides equal bleed air pressure to both piston faces in the actuator. Design Problem and Information Gathering Problem Statement: The challenge presented to our group is to develop an improved test apparatus for several different configurations of a Rudder Bias Actuator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
