Scientists have shown what happens when a drone plane face
A team of scientists from the University of Dayton Research Institute created a video that shows what can happen with the aircraft when it is faced with an unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone simply. The findings are presented together with the video on the academic summit this year. Due to the huge difference in size between the small civilian drones and commercial aircraft, many think that a collision between them is weak. But scientists have shown that this is not so. They conducted a practical experiment, exploring such a threat - when birds collide with the aircraft. Their findings are used by designers of aerial vehicles.
Noting that the bird can break the window and cause damage in the cockpit or engine damage, the researchers wondered what would happen to the drone. For this, they have worked with the team in the National Training and certification center in UAC Sinclair College. Together, the two groups have created a single-engine Mooney M20 wing on the ground, and then "Run" in his drone at a speed close to the speed of an airplane. It is, in fact, imitated clash with drone aircraft. Videos created by the team, clearly shows the dangers of such a collision. Rather than fall apart, bounce or explode beautifully, drone breaks cover wing and its internal parts, causing damage - even more damage than can cause a large bird strike. Moreover, it has resulted in damage to the main spar - the internal structure of the wing which carries the weight of the aircraft. Damaged spar can cause the plane to crash. The video also shows what might happen if the blow fell on the cabin rather than wing.
