Treatment The medical management of pericardial effusion is based on treating the underlying cause. Effusions causing pretamponade or tamponade require immediate drainage. Volume expansion and inotropic support may be used for hemodynamic stabilization pending drainage. In the immediate postoperative setting, surgical management and open drainage are preferred because of the high incidence of loculated effusions.
The engine lifted the vehicle to the test altitude and was then throttled back to support five-sixths of the vehicle's weight, simulating the reduced gravity of the Moon. Sixteen smaller hydrogen peroxide thrusters, mounted in pairs, gave the pilot control in pitch, yaw and roll.
The pilot had an ejection seat. On activation, it propelled the pilot upward from the vehicle with an acceleration of roughly 14 times the force of gravity for about a half second.
Manufactured by Weber Aircraft LLCit was one of the first zero-zero ejection seatscapable of saving the operator even if the aircraft was stationary on the ground, a necessity given the LLRV's low and slow flight envelope. LLRV 2 was also shipped at the same time, but in parts. The emphasis then was on LLTV 1.
It was first readied for flight on a tilt table constructed at FRC to evaluate its engine operation without actually flying it. The scene then shifted to the old South Base area of Edwards.
He continued to pilot a number of flights through Decemberafter which flights were shared with Don Mallick, also a FRC research pilot, and Jack Kleuver, the Army's senior helicopter test pilot. These included the addition of the LM's three-axis hand controller and throttle.
A Styrofoam cockpit enclosure was also added to simulate the pilot's restricted view in the LM. In Decembervehicle 1 was shipped to Houston, followed by 2 in January Ream also made flights that month.
The accident investigation board found that the fuel for the vehicle's attitude control thrusters had run out and that high winds were a major factor.
Flight testing continued until December 8 when control was lost by Algranti during a flight to expand the vehicle's speed envelope.
He managed to eject just three-fifths of a second before the vehicle hit the ground, the close call believed to be as a result of his attempt to regain control.
The accident investigation found that the ground controllers had elected not to monitor in real time the attitude thrusters that controlled the vehicle's yaw motion, and, at the velocity Algranti was flying, the thrusters had been overpowered by the LLTV's aerodynamic forces, causing Algranti to lose control.
Because of the LLRV and LLTV tight cost constraints, no wind tunnel testing had been performed and the decision had been made to rely on careful flight testing for the evaluation of the vehicles' aerodynamic characteristics.
Testing was initiated on January 7, and ended one month later on February 7. It was quickly determined that the cause of the divergence was the Styrofoam cockpit enclosure. As the vehicle's sideslip angle reached minus two degrees, a yawing force rapidly built up that exceeded the ability of the yaw thrusters to counteract.
The fix decided on was simply to remove the top of the enclosure, thus venting it and eliminating the excessive yawing force. It was also possible from the wind tunnel results to develop a preliminary flight envelope for the LLTV, defining its allowable maximum airspeed at various angles of angle of attack and sideslip.
All this had to be verified by flight test, however, since it was not possible in the tunnel to obtain good data with the engine running. The board reviewed the wind tunnel results, and on March 30 gave approval for the resumption of test flights in LLTV 2. The test program of 18 flights, all flown by H.
He commented after his return: I had made from 50 to 60 landings in the trainer, and the final trajectory I flew to the landing was very much like those flown in practice.
LLRV 2 was eventually returned to the Armstrong Flight Research Centerwhere it is on display as a silent artifact of the Center's contribution to the Apollo program. Its test pilot, Stuart Present was able to eject safely. The basic mode was with the engine fixed so that it always pointed downward in relation to the body.
In the gimbaled "Lunar Sim Mode", the engine was allowed to swivel and was kept pointing downward to the Earth; this allowed the vehicle to tilt at the far greater angles that would be typical of hovering and maneuvering above the lunar surface. Despite its ungainly appearance, the LLRV was equipped with an astonishingly sophisticated array of early sensor and computational hardware.
The system had no specific name, but the effect it produced was called "Lunar Sim Mode".
This was not a system to unburden the pilot, such as an autopilot does, nor was it meant to introduce any sort of safety or economy.
The system's sole intention was to project the illusion of piloting the Lunar Module. So, Lunar Sim Mode can be thought of as a mixture of stability augmentation, recalculation of vertical acceleration according to the lunar gravity constant, all followed by accompanied instantaneous corrective action.
The LLRV's Lunar Sim Mode even was able to counter-correct wind gusts within milliseconds, as they definitely would have disturbed the impression of a missing atmosphere. Sensor input for the Lunar Sim Mode was the Doppler radar.
The visually significant sign of an engaged Lunar Sim Mode was the free-gimbaled turbofanalways strictly pointing downward toward the ground, regardless the LLRV's current attitude.“I feel like I’m an above-average driver.” I feel like I’m a below-average driver. Likewise, I increasingly find driving stressful and dangerous, plus there are more and more good alternatives to driving that are often cheaper and faster and kinder to the environment.
