Abstract:

Various procedures currently employed for the assessment of aircraft turbine engine conditions are studied and analyzed. A new analyzer concept and the developments necessary for implementation are discussed. The major conclusions and methods discussed are that in order for turbine engines to be maintainable 1 Engine design should include comprehensive means for analysis and easy access to the engine interior 2 Economic efficiency demands engine operation to the point where maintenance service is required to prevent failure and performing only those services which are required 3 No single concept or system currently being used is sufficient for complete engine diagnosis, but the correct incorporation of certain techniques and features of such systems may be used in concert to fulfill this need. Such a concept has been envisioned and discussed. Author
