Abstract:

An experimental investigation is being conducted to evaluate the effect of very-low concentrations of sulfur in fuel on the durability of turbine-blade alloys when exposed under conditions simulating the environment in an aircraft-turbine engine operating in a marine environment. This has required development of a new turbine simulator, to increase productivity by simultaneous exposure of specimens and to improve precision by rotating specimens for uniform exposure in the high-velocity stream of high-temperature, high-pressure, corrosive gas.
