Edmonds Community College Course Development: Maintenance of Composite Aircraft Structures Presenter Charles Seaton – Edmonds Community College Overview of Course Development Process Time Frame
  • September 2004 through September 2005
  • Workshop – November 30, 2004 through December 2, 2004
  • Curriculum Development and Delivery – Jan 2005 through Sept 2005
  • ‘Yellow Pages’ – Web based resource for training from academic and industrial sources
  • Edmonds Community College
  • Established in 1967
  • Location: North Seattle suburbs (Lynnwood/Everett, WA locations) within 10 miles of Boeing (Everett) Campus
  • Philosophy: Strength through collaboration
  • Distance Learning: Started 10 years ago, with ~7,000 students enrolled in 2004
  • Onsite Learning: ~11,000 students
  • Edmonds Community College Curriculum-Historical Perspective A Series of Workshops to bring Industry & Regulators together on the Issues
  • FAA/NRC Workshop in Wash. DC (May 18 & 19, 2004)Executive review of systematic, repair, NDI & training issues
  • Kickoff meeting for FAA research at Edmonds Community College to evaluate training needs (Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2004) Continuous education (web-based training and short courses for technicians, inspectors and engineers) and 2 to 4 year programs
  • FAA Workshop (tentatively set for Chicago in Sept 2005) To review Edmonds C.C. efforts in studying available training resources versus the expanding needs and an introductory short course for technicians, inspectors and engineers
  • FAA JAMCOE Research in 2004/2005
  • Study to evaluate training needs and available resources
  • Create practical short introductory course (with OEM & maintenance expert insights) for technicians, inspectors and engineers
  • Documented study and course materials publicly available
  • Edmonds Community College course will be reviewed at the 2005 FAA Workshop
  • Future activities will expand into specialty areas and standardize composite maintenance training
  • Workshop Roadmap Knowledge Training Level Work Shop Outcomes ‘Parking Lot’ Issues Proprietary Materials [Advanced Training] Advanced/Proprietary Advanced Training Common Knowledge Practitioners in Maint. & Repair Baseline Understanding (Maintenance & Repair) ‘Simple Rules’ for Technicians, Engineers, & Inspectors Increasing Knowledge Prerequisites Ambient Environment Surface Preparation Structural Design
  • Student Perspective Development
  • “Appreciation for Complexity”
  • “The Hazards of shortcuts”
  • “When to ask for help”
  • Source Documentation Damage Assessment Material Selection Selection of Repair Technique Physical Environment Workshop (2004) Overview Objective: Establish fundamental baseline training for composites maintenance and repair training courses to achieve a common level of understanding
  • Technicians
  • Engineers
  • Inspectors Format: Three subgroups to consider unique requirements in separate breakout sessions and provide feedback & conclusions
  • Workshop (2004): Vision for Training Students at the end of the course will have a common foundation of understanding of the maintenance and repair of composite materials, preparing them for simple repairs and for more advanced training Students will be able to:
  • Use basic repair techniques (subordinate objectives TBD)
  • Read and follow source documentation and procedures (subordinate objectives TBD)
  • Determine selection criteria through assessment of damage for alternative repair solutions (subordinate objectives TBD)
  • Mitigate technical risks (subordinate objectives TBD)
  • Draft Terminal Course Objectives: As originally proposed for grant
  • Identify typical in-service damage types, including source and cause of damage, for composites
  • Identify different damage and repair assessments
  • Identify differences in repair techniques for composite structures with particular emphasis on composite bonded and bolted repair methods
  • Understand the repair process, including surface preparation, adhesive bonding, typical repairs (e.g. edge band, injected repair, potted repair), bagging and curing, post-repair and inspection to acceptance criteria, and surface restoration.
  • Draft Terminal Course Objectives: As originally proposed for grant
  • Establish a facility for repairs (remote and permanent locations), including shop equipment, specialized repair equipment, and measuring devices
  • Identify maintainability issues regarding paint removal and repainting, and bond/ground maintenance
  • Utilize documentation and reference materialsrequired for FAA certification compliance
  • Understand theimplication differences between secondary and primary structure damage repair
