Download as PDF 6208 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 20 / Wednesday, January 30, 2013 / Rules and Regulations RB211–Trent 972–84, RB211–Trent 972B–84, RB211–Trent 977–84, RB211–Trent 977B–84, and RB211–Trent 980–84 engines, all serial numbers. (d) Reason This AD was prompted by a Trent 900 engine experiencing low-pressure turbine (LPT) stage 2 disk interstage seal material loss and increased low-pressure rotor vibration while in flight. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracks in the LPT disk, which could result in uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane. (e) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, do the following. (1) After every flight after the effective date of this AD, review the Engine Health Monitoring (EHM) low-pressure rotor (N1) vibration data. If you find that the maximum and average vibrations exceed 0.7 inches/sec (ips) and 0.5 ips, respectively, then within 10 engine flight cycles, confirm that the vibration data was not the result of indicator error. (2) If you cannot show that the vibration increase was caused by indicator error, inspect the LPT disk seal fins and interstage seals. Use RR Repeater Technical Variance 125060, Issue 1, dated July 27, 2012, to do the inspections. (3) After the effective date of this AD, at each engine shop visit inspect the LPT disk seal fins and interstage seals. Use RR Alert Non-Modification Service Bulletin RB.211– 72–AH054, Revision 1, dated November 5, 2012, or Initial Issue, dated September 14, 2012, to do the inspections. (4) If, during the inspection required by paragraphs (e)(2) or (e)(3) of this AD, you find any cracks in the disk seal fins or that the interstage seals are missing seal material, replace the parts with hardware eligible for installation before returning the engine to service.

(g) Credit for Previous Actions If you took corrective action before the effective date of this AD in accordance with RR Repeater Technical Variance 125658, Issue 2, dated August 14, 2012, for detected excessive vibration, you met the inspection requirements of this AD. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with (f) Definitions For the purposes of this AD, a shop visit is defined as whenever engine maintenance performed prior to reinstallation requires one of the following: (1) Separation of a pair of major mating engine module flanges. However, separation of flanges solely for the purpose of shipment without subsequent internal maintenance is not a shop visit. Separation of the external gearbox engine mating flanges or removal of the external gearbox is also not classified as a shop visit. (2) Removal of a disk, hub, or spool. 32 CFR Part 68 (h) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) The Manager, Engine Certification Office, may approve AMOCs for this AD.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: C.E.C., Inc, on behalf of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) has requested a temporary deviation in order to perform maintenance on the State Route 23 (LA 23) vertical lift span bridge, also known as the Judge Perez Bridge, across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (Algiers Alternate Route), mile 3.8, at Belle Chasse, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This maintenance is necessary to make mechanical repairs to the bridge and to replace the wire ropes on the bridge. This temporary deviation will allow the bridge to remain closed to navigation position continuously from 6 a.m. on Sunday, February 24, 2013, until 6 a.m. on Monday, March 4, 2013. During the closure the draw will not be able to open for emergencies. Currently, as specified in 33 CFR 117.451(b), the draw opens on signal; except that, from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, the draw need not be opened for the passage of vessels. The State Route 23 vertical lift span drawbridge across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (Algiers Alternate Route), mile 3.8, at Belle Chasse, Louisiana has a vertical clearance of 40 feet above mean high water in the closed-tonavigation position and 100 feet above mean high water in the open-tonavigation position. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of tugs with tows, commercial fishing vessels, and occasional recreational craft. Mariners may use the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (Harvey Canal) to avoid unnecessary delays. The Coast Guard has coordinated this closure with the Gulf Intracoastal Canal Association (GICA). The GICA representative indicated that the vessel operators will be able to schedule transits through the bridge such that operations will not significantly be hindered. Thus, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. This closure is considered necessary for repair of the bridge. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:43 Jan 29, 2013 Jkt 229001 In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: C.E.C., Inc, on behalf of the Louisiana 
Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) has requested a 
temporary deviation in order to perform maintenance on the State Route 
23 (LA 23) vertical lift span bridge, also known as the Judge Perez 
Bridge, across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (Algiers Alternate 
Route), mile 3.8, at Belle Chasse, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This 
maintenance is necessary to make mechanical repairs to the bridge and 
to replace the wire ropes on the bridge. This temporary deviation will 
allow the bridge to remain closed to navigation position continuously 
from 6 a.m. on Sunday, February 24, 2013, until 6 a.m. on Monday, March 
4, 2013. During the closure the draw will not be able to open for 
emergencies. Currently, as specified in 33 CFR 117.451(b), the draw 
opens on signal; except that, from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 3:30 
p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, the 
draw need not be opened for the passage of vessels.
    The State Route 23 vertical lift span drawbridge across the Gulf 
Intracoastal Waterway (Algiers Alternate Route), mile 3.8, at Belle 
Chasse, Louisiana has a vertical clearance of 40 feet above mean high 
water in the closed-to-navigation position and 100 feet above mean high 
water in the open-to-navigation position. Navigation on the waterway 
consists primarily of tugs with tows, commercial fishing vessels, and 
occasional recreational craft. Mariners may use the Gulf Intracoastal 
Waterway (Harvey Canal) to avoid unnecessary delays. The Coast Guard 
has coordinated this closure with the Gulf Intracoastal Canal 
Association (GICA). The GICA representative indicated that the vessel 
operators will be able to schedule transits through the bridge such 
that operations will not significantly be hindered. Thus, it has been 
determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on 
these vessels. This closure is considered necessary for repair of the 
bridge.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
