Abstract

The design and production of sophisticated technical systems, which include modern rockets and other aircraft, requires their reliability and trouble-free operation. To achieve the required level of reliability of aerospace products, a wide variety of test methods are applied at all stages of the life cycle. One of the most important systems of the launch vehicle is the pneumatic hydraulic power system of the liquid rocket propulsion system. Development of new and improvement of existing methods of control and diagnostics is one way of increasing the design and technological reliability of products of aviation and space technology. The use of functional diagnostics systems for bench and flight tests significantly increases the reliability and efficiency of space rocket technology. Researches are directed on increase of a level of reliability of products of aerospace branch. Application of systems of functional diagnostics is described at bench tests. The results of experimental researches of elements of automatics of pneumatic hydraulic power supply systems of liquid rocket engines are considered. The technique of processing of experimental data of a pulsing-acoustic method of diagnostics with use of the mathematical technology of recognition of images is presented. Deciding rules of recognition of a technical condition of object of diagnosing by results of tests are resulted. The developed method with a high degree of accuracy allows to determine the technical condition of the object of diagnosis as defective or to detect the presence of characteristic defects. Experimental testing and the proposed method of processing the results showed the efficiency of the method.
