This is a letter report which summarizes the six tasks of this effort. It was not possible to complete shock tube measurements as originally planned due to schedule conflicts, equipment failures, and finally an explosion in Calspans lab. The funding was to expire in 1993, which would have incurred an additional obligation of the government if the effort were to be completed as originally planned. By mutual agreement, in order to prevent incurring any additional cost, the design, fabrication, calibration and installation of heat flux gages on the Advanced High Work turbine hardware was substituted for the only uncompleted task of the effort, that of actually running the shock tube test. The documentation of the delivered hardwares performance will be reported in the appropriate ATARR test report of the Advanced High Work Turbine. The resulting new instrumentation from this modification to the Statement of Work is shown as installed on the Advanced High Work Turbine in photos.
