Development and Application of a High Temperature Turbine Test Facility 670943
A test facility, test rigs, instrumentation techniques, and operating procedures have been developed to provide research and development capability for high temperature air cooled turbine components for gas turbine engines. The installation offers a wide range of flexibility for use as a high pressure air supply and as an experimental compressor test facility.
Instrumentation techniques developed include kryptonated turbine parts and fiber optic infrared probes. These are discussed in detail.
