AVIT 1410 - General Fundamentals III
General Fundamentals III includes basic physics instruction in mechanical advantage, conversion between forms of energy, vibrations, the gas laws, heat, and pressure. The practical application of these principles in aircraft structures and the theory of flight are also covered, in the study of aerodynamics presented in Chapter I of the Airframe textbook of AMTS. The student will understand the various types of nondestructive inspection and be able to perform simple inspections using dye penetrant, eddy current, ultrasonic, and magnetic particle inspection. He or she will understand the basic principles of heat treatment of both ferrous and nonferrous metals and be able to distinguish between properly and improperly made welds. This course also introduces the student to the selection of cleaning materials, with emphasis on their relationship to the type of material being cleaned. It stresses the identification of the various types of corrosion, the evaluation of corrosion damage, the proper way of removing the corrosion deposits, and the treatment of the corroded area.
