Authors Abstract
Content
The relative merits of the engine or rig approach to aerodynamic testing of components for small gas turbines are briefly discussed. Rigs were used to test a centrifugal compressor to 91,000 rpm, cold flow turbines to 37,000 rpm, and for development of a plenum type exhaust duct. The latter two cases applied to the PT 6 free turbine engine. Facility, instrumentation, and operating experience are covered.
