Pagination or Media Count:
This report provides a guide for the measurement of transient aerothermodynamic performance parameters of aircraft gas turbine engines or components for engine developers, test agencies, certifying authorities and operators of overhaul facilities and aircraft. It may be treated as an extension of AGARD Advisory Reports AR-245 and AR-248. It includes discussion of recommended procedures for the transient measurement of pressures, temperatures, flows, component geometry including rotational speed and clearances, thrust, torque, and the use of the engine control system for transient parameter measures. Typical examples are presented. A section on data acquisition and processing is included. Higher frequency dynamic measurements are excluded. Two examples, the measurement of compressor ratio and air flow at surge and a measurement of engine acceleration time are discussed in detail.
