Paper Abstract

Holographic interferometry has provided the engineer with one of the most powerful and versatile measurement tools of the twentieth century. It seems only natural that such a technique should have found widespread application in the aero-engine industry. The quest for ever more fuel-efficient gas-turbine engines is constantly stretching and extending the frontiers of technology. It creates an increasing need for understanding of the mechanical and aerodynamic behaviour of components under extreme conditions. Holography has recently achieved new importance as a means of providing the data necessary for the development and validation of computer models. Increasingly, design work is being performed by the application of complicated three-dimensional computer models to gas flow prediction and the use of finite-element models for the investigation of mechanical behaviour and stress.
