A Gas Turbine Laboratory with Computer Controlled Data Acquisition 680564

To implement a gas turbine development program, an engineering laboratory was expanded to provide five test cells and a process air station capable of delivering 30 lb/sec of air at 50 psig. An on-line computer controlled data system was included to speed data collection, reduce test reruns, and above all provide engineers with calculated results within minutes of the completion of a run.
The paper gives a brief description of the facility and its data system, and shows how such a facility can contribute to a gas turbine program.
