Abstract:

Methods of measuring the thrust of jet engines were surveyed to determine the state of the art of such measurements and their possible useful application as engine parameters for cockpit presentation. Some other systems for indicating engine performance were also considered but were not studied in detail because of their limitations. An analysis of the theory underlying some of the thrust measuring systems was made to determine if there were any inherent errors. Testing of completely integrated thrust measuring systems was recommended.
