Computational Analysis and Characterization of Cockpit Environmental Control System of a Fighter Aircraft in Humid Environment
he Environmental Control System (ECS) is an important part of any fighter aircraft and has far reaching repercussions in terms of its capability to operate as an effective weapon system under adverse weatherconditions. The aircrew and majority of electronics depend on ECS to keep temperature, pressure and humidity levels within acceptable limits for efficient operation. These limits are explicitly defined in relevant MIL standards MIL-E-18927E(AS)  . In order to thoroughly analyze the ECS of under study aircraft [2, 3], Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis techniques have been used. CFD techniques offer great flexibility since various conditions can be simulated and analyzed results can be used for required improvements in the system.
