Abstract:
This paper describes a flexible-film bladder, mode door. An air line is attached directly to the flexible valve through the mode housing or air duct for vacuum or positive pressure actuation. This technology addresses the need for more compact designs, part reduction and weight savings. It is designed to replace current mode valve doors, actuators and associated brackets. The propounded benefits of this design are outlined along with design considerations and part/system validation testing.
