Tacs Nitrogen Gas Storage Spheres Production Acceptance Test

To verify that the TACS gas storage spheres meet design requirements for leakage and proof pressure as follows Stabilize the sphere assembly at 150 + 10 F (65.5 + 12.2 C). Apply demoralized water tc> a pressure of 6000 + 100 psig (U13.6 x 105 + 6.89 x 105 Il m ) at the inlet port. Maintain pressure for two minutes. Stabilize the sphere assembly at -60 * 10 F (-51.1 + 12.2 C). Apply nitrogen gas to a pressure of 6,p00 + 100 psig (1413.6 x 105i 6.89 x 10< > ri ) at the inlet port. Maintain...

Skylab Orbital Workshop Meteoroid Shield Release Mechanism

Garden Drip Irrigation System

Entire length by the expansion of either tube of the redundent system. The folded panels were extended to the deployed position by pre-loaded torsion bars and springs after the restraining tension strap assently was severed. Each of the two explosive trains was initiated using an EBW system containing an electronic firing unit and a detonator. The plan was to initiate one system the other system remaining available as a backup. The electrical design provided for charge and firing commands from...

Skylab Orbital Workshop Meteoroid Shield Auxiliary Tunnel Frame And Beaded Panel Cover

, REPRODUCIBILITY OF THE ORIGINAL PAGE IS POOR two A-286 CRES jam nuts. A 6A1-UV titanium alloy torsion bar was passed through each sleeve mounting the rotatable links and connected at one end to the sleeve by an indexed spline. (Figure 2.2.2.1-6). The torsion bars were preloaded manually and supplied the energy required to deploy the shield. The anchor end of the torsion bar had a A-286 CRES keeper which slid on the hexagon of the torsion bar to pre-load it. The keeper was retained by a...

Intercostal Installation

Formed clad aluminum alloy sheet support between the inter-costals, were installed at each retrorocket location. Each retrorocket was supported at the forward end with two trunion type U3U0 steel fittings and the aft end with two tubular supports attached to the inteistage aft frame inboard cap through two 202U-T351 aluminum alloy fittings. A fairing with an electable nose section was installed at each retrorocket location. The fixed portion of the fairing, made of .063 in. 1.6 mm thick 202U-T3...

Skylab Orbital Workshop Basic Shell Structure Forward Skirt Panel Installation

Structure of the forward skirt was the replacement of the sheet metal skin with a chemically milled panel at each of the two SAS locations. The thickness of the chemically milled panel ranged from 0.032 to 0.122 in. .812 to 2.84 mm , providing increased strength a id stiffness in the areas subjected to SAS loads. The thermal shield installation, Drawing 1B79502, was added to the structure which extended forward from the tank joint to the first intermediate forward skirt frame, a length of about...

Skyla Orbital Workshop Skylab Configuration

Application of OWS Test Program Results - Light-gas gun ballistic tests were conducted to evaluate meteoroid shielding capabilities of various OWS s lib system configurations. The environmental model in NASA TMX-53957 specifies that the average meteoroid be of 0.5 gm ec density and have a velocity of 20 kilometers second. The available ligut-gas gun was not capable of launching particles with this velocity, so the test mass was increased by an amount governed by i momentum equivalence quation...
