Methods for Executing Gas Turbine Engine Performance Programs to Generate Envelope Performance for Customers

2017-04-10
WIP
AIR7486
This is an initial release of an Aerospace Information Report to provide methods for Engine Suppliers to follow to execute their in house performance models to generate datasets that are provided to airframe customers early in the conceptual design phase of an aircraft program. This AIR provides some general guidance for execution order and input settings to be used to execute the model.

Shared Memory Interface for Gas Turbine Engine Performance Programs

2016-10-31
WIP
ARP7998
This is a recommended practice for an interface to supplier simulations that utilize traditional interprocess communication (IPC) methods of shared memory and semaphore communications. These IPC methods are fairly standard practice in the computer science world, that allow for communication by separate processes running on a computer without any common runtime requirements of each process being run. So 32bit applications can talk with 64 bit applications as well as any other compiler or runtime dependency being needed by the calling program to interface with the called system. This also allows the calling program and the called program to be run on separate CPUs to allow parallel execution of the called program as well as multiple instances of the called program to execute all on separate processors.

Using Engine Test Data to Model Engine Performance

2019-11-05
CURRENT
AIR5509A
This document defines the process steps involved in collecting and processing engine test data for use in understanding engine behavior. It describes the use of an aero-thermal cycle model for reduction and analysis of those data. The analysis process may include the calculation of modifiers to match the model to measured data and prediction of engine performance based on that analysis.

Function-Based API for Gas Turbine Engine Performance Programs

2019-04-18
WIP
ARP4868D

The SAE Aerospace Standard document AS681 is the parent document of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP). AS681 applies to Engine programs written to conform to this document. This ARP specifies a set of functions and their expected behaviors that constitute a function based Application Program Interface (API) for gas turbine engine customer programs. The functions specified in this API are delivered by the Supplier as part of the Engine model.

This document defines generic language independent functions and specific appendices for implementations in C and Fortran.

The function based API specified in this ARP represents an alternative to the Fortran COMMON block structure, as specified in AS4191, historically used to communicate with an engine program. The customer may request emulation of the AS4191 interface if desired.

HISTORICAL
ARP4868
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) specifies a set of functions and their expected behavior that constitute an Application Programming Interface (API) for gas turbine engine customer programs. The main body of this document contains a description of each of the API function calls and of the data that passes through these functions. Implementations of this API in specific programming languages are contained in separate appendices. These appendices include language specific details and the definitions for each function as required for the given language. AS681 is the parent document of ARP4868. All of AS681 applies to customer engine programs written to conform to this document.

Gas Turbine Engine Performance Presentation for Digital Computer Programs Using Fortran 77

2009-05-05
CURRENT
ARP4191D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Paractice (ARP) provides a method for digital computer programs for gas turbine engine performance, steady-state or transient, performance to be written using the FORTRAN 77 language. When it is agreed between the program User and Supplier that a particular program shall be supplied in FORTRAN 77, it is recommended that this ARP be used in conjunction with AS681 for steady-state and transient programs. This ARP also describes how to take advantage of the FORTRAN 77 CHARACTER storage to extend the information interface between the calling program and the engine subroutine. The ARP has the same major section numbers as AS681 to facilitate its use with this document. The information given in each section of this ARP is additional to that given in AS 681.

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) provides the method for presentation of gas turbine engine steady state and transient performance calculated using computer programs. It also provides for the presentation of parametric gas turbine data including performance, weight and dimensions computed by computer programs. This standard is intended to facilitate calculations by the program user without unduly restricting the method of calculation used by the program supplier. This standard is applicable to, but not limited to the following program types: data reduction, steady-state, transient, preliminary design, study, specification, status & parametric programs.

Aircraft Propulsion System Performance Station Designation

2018-10-22
WIP
AS755G
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) provides a performance station designation system for aircraft propulsion systems and their derivatives. The station numbering conventions presented herein are for use in all communications concerning propulsion system performance such as computer programs, data reduction, design activities, and published documents. They are intended to facilitate calculations by the program user without unduly restricting the method of calculation used by the program supplier. The contents of this document were previously a subset of AS755E. Due to the growing complexity of station numbering schemes and an industry desire to expand nomenclature descriptions, a decision was made to separate the “station numbering” and “nomenclature” contents of AS755 into two separate documents. AS755 will continue to maintain standards for station numbering. SAE Aerospace Standard AS6502 will maintain standards for classical nomenclature moving forward.

Gas Turbine Engine Real Time Performance Model Presentation

2015-03-09
CURRENT
ARP4148C
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides guidance for the presentation of gas turbine engine transient performance models with the capacity to be implemented as computer programs operating in real time and is intended to complement AS681. Such models will be used in those applications where a transient program must interface with physical systems. These applications are characterized by the requirement for real time transient response. These models require attention to unique characteristics that are beyond the scope of AS681. This document is intended to facilitate the development of mathematical models and the coordination of their requirements with the user. It will not unduly restrict the modeling methodology used by the supplier. The objective of this document is to define a recommended practice for the delivery of mathematical models intended for real time use. Models used in this application may also be contained in deliverable computer programs covered by AS681.
