Abstract : This report documents an investigation into the feasibility of applying wear debris analysis methods as a maintenance tool for aircraft hydraulic systems. A breadboard was designed and operated, fluid samples were analyzed and trended. No relevant failures were experienced and limited conclusions reached. Recommendations are made for further investigations. (Author)
