Abstract:

The chronology and analysis of the altitude development cycle of a typical current state-of-the-art turbine engine at the Engine Test Facility of the Arnold Engineering Development Center is reviewed to provide visibility and guidelines to improve the ETFAEDC support capability to turbine engine test programs. A critical review of the program is reported with respect to three salient areas 1 a comparison of the original test schedule with the achieved schedule, 2 a chronology of the engine builds tested, 3 and a resume of the test planningcoordination activities of the program.
