Abstract:

A research study was conducted to relate measureable parameters to the airworthiness of gasturbine-powered civil aircraft. The measurable parameters associated with the airframe, propulsion systems, mechanical systems, and electrical and electronic systems were included. Trendanalysis techniques can be used to indicate malperformance and predict some incipient mechanical failures for gas-turbine power plants and for some of the mechanical systems. A limited knowledge of materials and their modes of failure impeded the identification of useful parameters for most mechanical and electromechanical systems and for airframe elements. Author
