The Tekhnodinamika association (included in Rostec) completed the performance test under extreme conditions of the first in Russia accident-resistant fuel system for helicopters designed to protect against the effects of hard landings, reports RIA News message of the press service of the enterprise.


Rostec: crash-tested helicopter fuel system tested


“On November XNUMX, at the test site in Ulyanovsk, the Tekhnodinamika holding completed its performance tests in extreme conditions with the latest crash-resistant fuel system for helicopters. The system was created as part of the program of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation "Development of civil aviation Russian technicians for the period until 2015. "The holding and the ministry expect that it will be installed on the latest Russian-made helicopters," the release said.

It is noted that "Tekhnodinamika" for the first time in Russia created such a system and confirmed its performance by conducting a series of discharges of fuel tank models, as well as successful tests of other system units. "

“The final performance tests, which took place today in Ulyanovsk, consisted in the fact that the layout of the fuel tank weighing 500 a kilogram with the signal fluid inside was dropped from the 15-meter height. At the same time, the shell of the tanks and the innovative elements built into it prevented leakage of the signal fluid. In real conditions, this means that the fuel will not flow out and the car will avoid fire, ”said the press service.

The peculiarity of the system is that “in an accident, the tanks retain their integrity, and the connections are broken in special elements that prevent fuel leakage”.

“It is important that this development be applied on Russian helicopters: this will significantly increase their reliability and safety, and therefore competitiveness on the Russian and world markets,” the press service of the Deputy Minister of Industry Andrei Bohinsky said.

According to Maxim Kuzyuk, CEO of the holding, “such systems have not been previously developed in Russia, and there are only a few analogues in the world”.

“In the 2016-2017, after optimizing the weight and improving the manufacturability for a particular helicopter, we will conduct its comprehensive reliability tests. After that, we will be able to certify our development according to international standards and offer Russian and international manufacturers of helicopter technology, ”he said.

      The Russian land has not become impoverished with talents!
      Well done!
      Work is underway in all areas of engineering.
      It is important that safety is not in the last place!
      The more inventions and tests, the more reliable the technology as a result.

        on formula 1, too, balids often burned when struck. Seychaz they have "rubber" "gas tanks. so that there would be no extra sparks

        Talents, YES. Only talent, without support, he washes away ...

        And only thanks to such indifferent people as A. Serdyukov, who came to the management of the company, it was possible to make a breakthrough.

        The reform of Rostec is in good hands. yes

        Not yet impoverished, the Russian Land ... FRAMES ...

        Final performance tests

        - Well, what kind of nonsense are you writing, dear? Yes, the system may be really wonderful, and the helicopter can crash from 5.000 meters to the ground and not even catch fire. So what? Civil helicopter construction in Russia - tell me where it is today? Mostly military helicopters are built, while civilian ones, if they are built, then, for the most part, for sale. I live in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, and helicopters are not in last place here - there are more than enough villages and springs, and the runways (and that are the most ancient, I must say) are only in more or less large cities, of which there are 2,5 for the entire Okrug. During spring sludge, floods or autumn "monsoons", many villages remain cut off from the "land", and in winter people get there either by snowmobiles, or - most - by helicopters. So that's it. Our helicopter fleets are ancient ... the mammoth, I apologize for being rude. A patch on a patch, duct tape, duct tape and "such a mother" - that's all that keeps them in the air. And, I'll tell you a secret, no one is going to update this park - until the last "rotorcraft" falls to the ground, scattering in the air in flakes of rust, probably. So this newest emergency security system will be mastered not by Russian pilots, but by Indians or Chinese. So what are you so happy about is not clear.

            - Well, what does your comment have to do with it? I didn't say anything about the state. Or is it only here that air transportation is in private hands, and in all other regions there are government offices, which, of course, change helicopters every year and constantly modernize them? Or is it because of private airlines everything is so deplorable, and not at all because there are no (or are not used) control mechanisms over them and strict security measures that they must adhere to, including the service life of individual air units? Clear day, "private traders" are to blame for everything. And even better - when we ourselves are to blame for everything. That’s not chipped in a hundred rubles - and I didn’t buy another “take-more-carry-further” new helicopter. And the civil servant, who must inspect the state of technology, is not to blame. Especially at that moment, he is not to blame when a large, plump coated envelope with unknown contents is put into his expensive leather daddy, after which he diligently does not look around and goes to the exit, carefully, with a certain disgust, stepping over hastily sprinkled with sand oily streams ...

              I apologize, but is it not the duty of the state to provide transport accessibility for the people of the Russian Federation? Or is our state only for officials and stripping our own people? There is no private company that will provide a safe, affordable way for the population to deliver to the right place; you need to create a state one. People should not suffer from dope officials!

          So what you are so happy about is incomprehensible.

          To the fact that it’s better done at least this than not at all. If military helicopters stop burning, this is not bad either. Do military helicopters? Poorly? So the war goes on if you notice. They will smear us and forget about old helicopters. If we win, it will come to new ones. I myself am a lover of criticism and a pessimist, but sometimes even it happens to me over the edge.

            - Maybe you are right. It always seemed to me that for a military helicopter, protection against hitting is more relevant, but maybe I'm wrong. I hope there is money for their conversion.

            - I have heard this fairy tale for a very long time. And someone else is always to blame: first a crisis, then "optimization", then reforms, then a war, then something else ... and this is what is interesting: the "private traders" must renew their fleets, as the comrade above justly noted, this is their property. They do not do this due to the fact that the state does not put pressure on them in any way. But! The state will not invest anything in the re-equipment of aircraft fleets, do you understand? All he needs to do is shoot a couple of hundreds of useless bureaucratic junk that is responsible for the control system, and recruit new predecessors inspired by fate. So what does it have to do with the excuse about "war"?

            - And I'm just the same optimist. If I was a pessimist, I would not have resisted it long ago and fled to some "ceevrope". But I still believe in my country and in my people. And the fact that I am angry at the current state of affairs does not mean that I do not love the Fatherland or that I am ready to break with my people.

            With all that we are in a state of war, we must not forget about the needs of the peaceful people, otherwise, for whom will there be a victory? Pirov’s victory? They won, but there is no one to rejoice, is everyone already extinct?

    There are a lot of questions ... but was the initial speed? , why exactly 15 meters, what is the maximum height? etc. .

      The first second of free fall = the body travels 4,9 m. In the second second, another 9,81 m. The diameter of the Mi-8 main rotor is about 21,3 m. The most dangerous hit of a rotary-wing aircraft in the so-called. "vortex ring", when the air displaced by the rotor enters the "intake" air again. Up to H = 30 m. This is the area of ​​potential instability of the helicopter in hover mode. Here, somewhere like that ...

    It’s a pity they didn’t have time to put the system on Mi 28 that fell in Ryazan, perhaps the pilot would have survived.

    Of course, helicopters crash, at least in emergency landing mode, but this system itself is interesting in other applications. Just how expensive it all is, it is advisable to find out, maybe you can use it in other places.

    Such a system is necessary not only in helicopters, the range of applications is wide in both military and civil engineering.

    500 kg fuel tank model with signal liquid inside, dropped from a 15-meter height


    I am not a specialist in air crashes, but most likely the weight of the aircraft itself does not have a weak mechanical impact on the tank.
    And where is 15 meters from? Although most likely this is the average value based on the analysis of accidents.

    All this is wonderful! But one thing is offensive, my godson served in one of the helicopter regiments in the guard (conscript), so he told in what condition our helicopter fleet! I was just horrified! the helicopter landed, oil runs from it wherever possible, instead of repairing after the units have cooled down, conscripts go with rags and wipe the oil where possible, fill it with sand on the ground ... in short THE BADGER !!!!!! I hope this is ONLY in the part where he served, in other places it’s normal. Although knowing our realities ...

    Well this is not bad. After all, after the helicopter crashed at Aviadarts 2015, a fuel ignition occurred and the pilot died. After that, this topic was raised in full. I am glad that this problem has been solved in half a year. I think helicopters will undergo modernization as soon as possible. Good luck to helicopter builders.
