asymmetric thrust

24 examples (0.03 sec)
  • The resulting asymmetric thrust condition resulted in a loss of control and a crash ensued.
  • A failure of both engines on one wing for this aircraft type may exceed the rudder authority of the aircraft to counter the asymmetric thrust.
  • This mounting location provides no wing bending relief but, following an engine failure, does offer much less yaw due to asymmetric thrust than would wing-mounted engines.
  • They may also occur when an aircraft departs a paved surface: for example, after an engine failure in multi-engine airplanes produces asymmetric thrust.
  • In addition, a single engine failure does not lead to asymmetric thrust, and in normal flight there is no net torque so the plane is easy to handle.
  • Due to the asymmetric thrust, the starboard wing lifted, banking the aircraft to over 100 degrees.
  • Loss of an F-14 engine results in asymmetric thrust, which can exceed rudder authority, especially at low speeds.
  • Tilting the ring resulted in asymmetric thrust for directional control.
  • If two of the engines on the aircraft were not operational, a significant amount of asymmetric thrust would be generated, which is capable of causing an aircraft to roll unless properly corrected for.
  • In multi-engined aircraft where the engines are off the centre line, the rudder may be used to trim against the yaw effect of asymmetric thrust, for example in the event of engine failure.
  • The FDD is particularly important to the pilot during the boost and coast phase in order to "turn the corner" and null rates caused by asymmetric thrust.
  • This allowed the engines to be located further inboard than on previous designs, bringing them closer to the aircraft's centreline and therefore minimising the effects of asymmetric thrust in the event of an engine failure.
  • He aligned the aircraft using asymmetric thrust, told passengers to brace themselves, and descended into the upward sloping hillside with wheels and flaps retracted.
  • Analysis concluded that the accident was caused by a combination of failure of the propeller feathering mechanism, high drag to the landing gear, small fin area, asymmetric thrust and limited engine power.
  • While climbing on the two operating engines, with asymmetric thrust, the number one engine (outboard on left side) failed due to over-boosting, leading to a rapid loss of airspeed and eventual stall.
  • The difficulties of asymmetric thrust created by losing an engine on a twin-engine design had proved to be not nearly as bad as Ursinus had originally believed, and therefore the G.I's unusual design was really an answer to a non-existent problem.
  • Flying with asymmetric thrust from the two left side engines (which were operating normally at that point), the captain decided to land in Byrd Field (now called Richmond International Airport), near Richmond, Virginia, as a precaution.
  • Chief designer Bishop chose the Comet's embedded-engine configuration because it avoided the drag of podded engines and allowed for a smaller fin and rudder, since the hazards of asymmetric thrust were reduced.
  • The C-142 was powered by four General Electric T64 turboshaft engines cross-linked on a common drive-shaft to drive four Hamilton Standard fiberglass propellers which eliminated engine-out asymmetric thrust problems during VTOL operations.
  • An asymmetric thrust vector control (TVC) nozzle, similar to the TVC nozzle of the Russian AL-31F-TVN engine, has also been reported undergoing testing.
