Title:
PIPE SUPPORT STRUCTURE FOR AIRCRAFT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/057039
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A pipe support structure for an aircraft is provided with: a translation mechanism for supporting a pipe so that the pipe can be translated; and an angle adjustment mechanism for supporting the pipe so that the angle thereof can be adjusted. The translation mechanism is provided with: an eccentric sleeve for allowing the pipe to be inserted therethrough and adjusting the position of the pipe in the Z-direction perpendicular to the X-direction; and a Y-direction adjustment mechanism for adjusting the position of the eccentric sleeve in the Y-direction perpendicular to both the X-direction and the Z-direction. The angle adjustment mechanism is provided with: a first member for supporting the pipe and having a first curved surface; and a second member which has a second curved surface having a shape correspond to the shape of the first curved surface, is in sliding contact at the second curved surface thereof with the first curved surface, and supports on the second curved surface thereof the first member. The first curved surface and the second curved surface are formed in such a manner that a cross-section thereof taken in the XZ-plane is circular arc, and the angle of the pipe is adjusted by sliding the first curved surface relative to the second curved surface. Thus, the pipe support structure for an aircraft can reduce preload.
