This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides to the aerospace industry a procedure for the consistent and accurate calculation of fuel flow using turbine flowmeters during development, production, and post overhaul/repair gas turbine engine testing.
Rationale: One method for measuring fuel flow to a test vehicle is by means of a turbine flow meter. The data and processes outlined in this document represent a recommended practice in the calculation of fuel flow through this type of a device.
