Abstract:

The Joint Oil Analysis Program Technical Support Center JOAP-TSC was tasked by the U.S. Air Force to determine the appropriateness of various oil analysis techniques to provide early warning of abnormal operating conditions. The study analyzed tilde 1300 samples from F-16, F110-GE100 gas turbine engines by spectroscopy AES and FT-IR and direct reading and analytical ferrography. A statistical analysis of the data collected is presented.
