Abstract:

Full-scale tests simulating engine combustion section thermal failures burn-through were conducted using J57 engine cowled and uncowled to determine the feasibility of detecting a burn-through prior to its occurrence by monitoring engine skin temperature. Results of the tests indicated that as few as four thermocouples, located 90 degrees apart around the diffuser case andor burner can case, could detect a burn-through prior to engine case rupture.
