Paper Abstract

The application of carbon/carbon technology to high speed/high temperature gas turbine systems requires the acquisition of visual data to measure the materials performance. This visualization system provides real time performance of turbine blades rotating at RPM's higher than 50,000 at temperatures above 3000°F. Surface details 15-20 micrometers in size are readily observable. In addition, the viewing window serves as a sample plate for collecting materials that separate from the turbine blades.
