Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.; Coast Guard Inst., Oklahoma City, OK.
This self-paced, individualized course, adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational and technical education, teaches students the skills needed to become aviation structural mechanics (second class). The course materials consist of five pamphlets covering the structural maintenance and repair of aircraft. The first pamphlet provides basic and general safety requirements for aircraft ground handling operations and for work performed on the line, in ships, and in the hangar. The second pamphlet provides basic information on the types, uses, and installation and removal of common types of hardware, such as bolts, nuts, and washers as well as miscellaneous hardware, safetying and turnlock fasteners. The types and characteristics of metals used in aircraft construction and the common types of aircraft hardware are the topics covered in the third pamphlet. The two types of aircraft metals (ferrous and non-ferrous), their characteristics, identification and uses in aviation are discussed. Also included are the factors to be considered when substituting and interchanging metals in aircraft construction. The fourth pamphlet presents an overview of the corrosion process, including identification and removal of corrosive damage, and metal surface preservation, while the final pamphlet provides more detail about the corrosion process. Each pamphlet is a student workbook with reading assignments, learning objectives, self-tests, and answers to the tests. Materials are illustrated with line drawings. (KC)
