Abstract:

While the units and subassemblies can be assembled both in an assembly shop and in the assembly sections of the combined and machine-assembly shops, the overall assembly of an engine is done only in an assembly shop. The overall assembly of engines, just as the assembly of units, consists of the preliminary intermediate and final assembly operations. In the process of conducting these operations, a check is made of the mutual arrangement of the parts and units the axial, radial and diametral clearances and fits are established. These must comply with the technical specifications for the overall assembly of engines. The report discusses the overall assembly of three types of gas-turbine engines GTE, differing significantly in design of basic units therefore the preliminary intermediate and final assembly processes differ in respect to the methods used in these processes.
