Title:
FLUID TRANSPORT SYSTEM FOR PREVENTING ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2018115766
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a method and apparatus for limiting the flow of electric current, induced by an event such as lightning or an electrical fault, along a fluid transport system and allowing static dissipation along the fluid transport system.SOLUTION: A method and apparatus for reducing the intensity of an electrical discharge that occurs within a fluid transport system 100 in an aerospace vehicle 106. The aerospace vehicle 106 is operated. The fluid transport system 100 in the aerospace vehicle comprises materials selected such that the fluid transport system 100 has an electrical configuration. The intensity of the electrical discharge that occurs within the fluid transport system 100 during operation of the aerospace vehicle 106 is reduced to within selected tolerances by the electrical configuration of the fluid transport system 100.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 1
