Abstract:

Our team project is about the working of flight control surfaces by using mechanical system. In mechanical flight control system the control stick is moved by external force of pilot to deflect the primary and secondary control surface. The prototype of flight control surface was made from Cessna-172 aircraft by reducing scale ratio of it. The movement of control surface is obtained by the applied force on the control stick or pedal is transmitted to pulleys by cable. Then the tension of cable to make the control surface deflection. Demonstrate the mechanism of mechanical flight control system and their components. Understand the concept of force transfer through the pulleys, cables, gears and chain.
