Title: APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR ACTUATING A DOUBLE-SLOTTED FLAP USING A SLAVE SCREW
Abstract:
Apparatus and method for actuating a double-slotted flap (26) movably coupled to an aircraft wing (12) are disclosed. An exemplary method comprises actuating a first panel (26A) of the double-slotted flap (26) relative to a structure of the aircraft wing (12), using motion of the first panel (26A) to induce rotation of a slave screw (38), and using the rotation of the slave screw (38) to actuate the second panel (26B) relative to the first panel (26A).
