Demonstration, validation and certification of forced pulsed waterjet technique for the removal of coatings from aircraft/aerospace components

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Extensive work is in progress in the laboratory to investigate the feasibility of using forced pulsed waterjet (FPWJ) technique for removing a variety of coatings (Chrome, HVOF, plasma) from aircraft/aerospace components. Airworthiness, that is, certification of the technique as safe for aerospace applications requires: (1) demonstration that the FPWJ does indeed remove the coatings without damaging the substrate material and (2) validation that it will not alter the properties of the components (dimensions, compressive stresses, etc.). While demonstration stage has been completed successfully, further work continues to validate FPWJ as airworthy and green technique for the removal of coatings. copy; BHR Group 2008 Water Jetting 19.
