THE APPLICATION OF A DESIGN VERIFICATION SYSTEM AND ACCELERATED MISSION TESTING TO GAS TURBINE ENGINE DEVELOPMENT 780991
Two advanced techniques to improve the process of designing and developing high technology gas turbine engines are being evaluated and implemented at the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Government Products Division:
Improved Design Verification System
Accelerated Mission Endurance Test Techniques.
These techniques are not new, but they have been significantly improved and strengthened in the past few years by the development of new high technology instrumentation and sophisticated computerized design prediction methods. These tools are aimed at providing improved product reliability during the early operational phase and reducing ultimate cost of ownership for the user.
