In September, 1976, AiResearch Manufacturing Company of Arizona initiated a program for the United States Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory to hot-rig test TFE731-3 Axial Laminated Turbine Rotors and verify their heat-transfer performance and mechanical integrity. The testing was to be conducted in the AiResearch High Temperature Turbine Test Facility, and three major tests were planned - a heat-transfer performance test, an accelerated stress-rupture test, and a thermal cyclic test. This interim report describes the progress to date on the Hot-Rig Program, just prior to the redirection in accordance with contract modification, P00003. This redirection concludes the Hot-Rig activities. The redirected test program will test one of the laminated turbine wheels directly in the Model 1131-1 Advanced Gas Generator. Also, a small laminated axial turbine rotor suitable for cruise missile application will be designed during this program. Author
