Investigation of Main Injection Quantity Fluctuation due to Pilot Injection in High Pressure Common Rail Fuel Injection System

High pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel injection system is the main development trend for fuel injection system of diesel engine. Precise controlling of injection pressure and multiple injections are the advantages and key features of the HPCR system. Affect of pilot injection quantity (PIQ) and pilot-main interval (PMI) on main injection quantity fluctuation (MIQF) has been investigated in this paper by evaluating performance coherence and stability of injection quantity of diesel engine.

THE PLACE OF PSYCHOMETRIC TESTING IN PILOT SELECTION

BACKGROUND After World War One efforts to predict success in pilot training were occurring both in Europe and the United States. In Europe, the French and British approaches tended to focus on the Physiological challenges of aviation. In the United States, the approach tended to focus more on the psychological difficulties. This dichotomous approach continued well into the Second World War. It was not until the landmark Pensacola 1000 study in the United States in 1945 that demonstrated the

Assessment of microdamage caused by orthodontic miniscrew pilot holes

Introduction: The clinical success of orthodontic miniscrew implants may be improved after pre-drilling a pilot hole. However, the amount of microdamage to the bone surface produced by the pilot hole is largely unknown. The present study aimed to quantify the damage to cortical bone after the creation of a pilot hole. Materials and methods: Porcine tibia bone was prepared into 30 rectangular bone block specimens with widths of 1.5, 2.0 or 2.5 mm. A pilot hole (0.9 mm diameter) was drilled into

Quadrotor Formation Control Method Based on Graph and Consistency Theory

This paper introduces graph and group system consistency theory and puts forward a quadrotor formation control method. The quadrotor is described as a second-order integrator dynamic system, and the relative position deviation of different quadrotors is used to describe formation. According to the communication topology relationship between quadrotors, the formation is modeled by graph theory. The fusion of the pilot-follow and graph theory method is analyzed, and a second-order coherence

PLEOMORPHIC SARCOMA IN A PILOT

ABSTRACT Sarcomas are rare malignant soft tissue tumours. This case report outlines a 45 year old pilot, presenting with a non-tender mass in his left medial thigh, subsequently diagnosed with a pleomorphic sarcoma. His management consisted of radiotherapy and surgical removal. Grading was considered FNCLCC grade 3 and there were no metastases. Surgery was followed by a structured rehabilitation program.

Can pregnant women accurately report snoring? A pilot study

-reports may not provide an accurate assessment of SBD symptoms in late pregnancy. Self-report in this study, resulted in an underestimation of the number of participants who experienced SDB symptoms. This was a pilot study, with a small sample size. However, our study lends weight to others that found poor predictive value of common scales to detect SDB in pregnancy. Future study is therefore needed to validate screening tools, which may need to be a combination of measures.

CHALLENGES WITH RECERTIFICATION (OF EAGLE’S SYNDROME) – WHO HAS THE TIME?

A 50 year old male airline transport pilot licence (ATPL) pilot had been on a CASA audit requirement (CAR) for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma since 2010. As part of his ongoing haematological medical surveillance a neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis CT scan in 2014 reported an “incidental” abnormality in his neck. Perusal of the first several articles raised from a “Google” search of the abnormality linked it with possible stroke, carotid dissection and death. Would CASA now cancel or suspend this pilot’s

In this paper, the formation control problem of quadrotor is studied under ideal communication condition. The quadrotor has a complex mathematical model. First, the unit quaternion method is used to describe its dynamic model and kinematic model. It is decomposed into two independent subsystems of position and attitude. The tracking error model is established by introducing the error between the ture trajectory and the desired trajectory. And then appointing a member of formation as a pilot
