Abstract
The Transonic Turbine Test Rig located in the Turbo-Propulsion Laboratory of the Naval Postgraduate School is used to analyze axial turbine stage performance. The Test Rig is designed to separately measure stator and rotor losses without the use of velocity or pressure surveys. Various stator and rotor blade types can be investigated over wide ranges of axial and radial blade clearances in addition to variations in normal operating parameters. This paper describes the development of on-line data acquisition and analysis for the Turbo-Propulsion Laboratory in conjunction with the Turbine Test Rig. It also describes various improvements to the Turbine Test Rig itself.
