Paper Abstract

The application of optical measurement techniques to aircraft engine testing is described including measurement systems for turbine blade tip clearance compressor blade vibration fan blade profile turbine blade temperature and flow diagnostics. The signal and data processing associated with these techniques is emphasised and the prospects for further extending the use of optical methods on ground test and flight engines is discussed. The possibility of applying optical processing techniques is also briefly discussed.
