SAE International  (美国宾夕法尼亚州Warrendale)和威奇塔州立大学(WSU,Wichita,Kan。,US)的国家先进材料性能中心(NCAMP)已签署协议,合作开发全球统一的航空航天材料和航空航天运输行业先进材料的工艺规范。

“SAE International很高兴与NCAMP合作开发用于新设计和维修的先进材料的航空航天材料和工艺规范,”SAE International航空航天标准主管David Alexander说。该协议涵盖复合材料的材料和工艺规范,由SAE AMS P-17,聚合物基复合材料委员会和非金属添加剂制造开发,由SAE AMS-AM非金属委员会开发。

亚历山大承认了这项协议的力量,使NCAMP的工作与SAE的审计机构 - 绩效评估研究所(PRI)的工作保持一致。PRI负责管理航空航天和国防工业的Nadcap认证计划。“通过利用行业共识SAE航空航天材料规范(AMS)和相关的PRI合格产品清单(QPL),航空航天业得益于纯种材料的可用性,这些材料符合有关材料鉴定和控制的航空法规要求,”Alexander补充说。

“NCAMP与SAE的持续合作将为行业用户提供多种规格选择,所有这些选项都与公共NCAMP材料特性资格数据库相关联,”NCAMP主任兼WSU研究和技术转让副总裁John Tomblin说。“通过继续采用这一模式在地方与复合材料于2010年成立,NCAMP数据库将惠及全球产业既是美国联邦航空管理局(FAA)和欧洲航空安全局(EASA)接受通过NCAMP工艺开发的价值。”

该因此,航空航天工业将能够使用NCAMP材料规范或SAE航空航天材料规范,具体取决于满足其需求的规格。

SAE国际公司航空航天标准库包括近8,500份文件。其350个委员会由来自56个国家的10,000名专家组成。他们代表行业(飞机制造商,供应商,运营商,MRO),监管机构,军事机构,研究人员和顾问。文档开发服务于商业和军事领域的各种航空航天业务,从而满足世界市场的工程,先进技术,安全,监管和国防需求。

NCAMP与美国联邦航空局以及其他政府和行业合作伙伴合作,对高级材料系统进行鉴定,并填充可公开查看的共享材料数据库。NCAMP通过多个用户之间的数据共享,统计连续性和减少测试,为国家的商业和军事航空业提供复合材料和先进材料的验证和质量保证中心。NCAMP与复合材料手册-17(CMH-17)密切合作,以批准先进的材料规格和设计值。NCAMP是威奇塔州立大学国家航空研究所的一部分,源自NASA的先进通用航空运输实验(AGATE)。

SAE and NCAMP to develop aerospace material and process standards

The collaboration will develop global material and process specifications for advanced materials, including composites, in the aerospace and air transport industries.

SAE International (Warrendale, Pa., U.S.) and the National Center for Advanced Materials Performance (NCAMP) of Wichita State University (WSU, Wichita, Kan., U.S.) have signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of globally harmonized aerospace material and process specifications for advanced materials in the aerospace and air transport industries.

“SAE International is pleased to partner with NCAMP on the development of aerospace material and process specifications for advanced materials for new design as well as repair,” says David Alexander, director of aerospace standards for SAE International. The agreement encompasses material and process specifications for composites, which are developed by the SAE AMS P-17, Polymer Matrix Composites Committee and non-metal additive manufacturing, which are developed by the SAE AMS-AM Nonmetals Committee.

Alexander acknowledged the power of this agreement, aligning the work of NCAMP with that of SAE’s auditing body, the Performance Review Institute (PRI). PRI manages the Nadcap accreditation program for the aerospace and defense industries. “By utilizing industry consensus SAE Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) with associated PRI Qualified Products Lists (QPLs), the aerospace industry benefits from the availability of pedigreed materials which meet the requirements of aviation regulations pertaining to material qualification and control,” Alexander adds.

“NCAMP’s continued partnership with SAE will benefit industry users by providing multiple options for specifications, all linked to a public NCAMP material property qualification database,” says John Tomblin, NCAMP director and WSU vice president for research and technology transfer. “By continuing to implement the model set in place with composites in 2010, NCAMP databases will benefit industry worldwide as both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) accept the values developed through the NCAMP process.”

The aerospace industry, thus, will be able to utilize either NCAMP Material Specifications or SAE Aerospace Material Specifications, depending upon which specification meet their needs.

SAE International’s Aerospace Standards repository includes nearly 8,500 documents. Its 350 committees are comprised of 10,000 experts from 56 countries. They represent industry (airframers, suppliers, operators, MROs), regulatory authorities, military agencies, researchers, and consultants. Document development serves the full spectrum of aerospace businesses in both the commercial and military sectors thereby meeting the engineering, advanced technology, safety, regulatory, and defense needs of a world market.

NCAMP works with the FAA, as well as other government and industry partners to qualify advanced material systems and populate a shared materials database that can be viewed publicly. NCAMP provides the nation’s commercial and military aviation industry with a center for the validation and quality assurance of composites and advanced materials through data-sharing among multiple users, statistical continuity and reduced testing. NCAMP works closely with the Composite Materials Handbook-17 (CMH-17) to approve advanced material specification and design values. NCAMP is part of the National Institute for Aviation Research at Wichita State University and stemmed from NASA's Advanced General Aviation Transport Experiment (AGATE).
