The results of an experimental investigation of the nature and characteristics of the effect of dust on the erosion of a small gas turbine engine are presented. From laboratory tests, superior erosion-resistant materials were selected for evaluation in engine tests. These tests have indicated that the service life of the engine can be doubled by the utilization of selected coatings.
