Abstract:

The Small Turboshaft Engine Research STER program is being conducted by the Army Propulsion Directorate at the NASA Lewis Research Center. This program provides a vehicle for evaluating the application of emerging technologies to Army turboshaft engine systems and to investigate system related phenomena. Capitalizing on the sources at hand, in the form of both the NASA facilities and the Army personnel, the program goal of developing a physical understanding of engine system dynamics andor system interactions is being realized. STER entries investigate concepts and components developed both in- house and out-of-house. Emphasis is placed upon evaluations which have evolved from on-going basic research 6.1 and advanced development 6.2 programs. Army aviation program managers are also encouraged to make use of STER resources, both people and facilities. The STER personnel have established their reputations as experts in the fields of engine system experimental evaluations and engine system phenomena. JS
