The development of TURBISTAN was a joint effort by CEAT (Centre ďEssais Aeronautique de Toulouse, France); IABG (Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft); LBF (Fraunhofer-Institut für Betriebsfestigkeit, West Germany); MTU (MTU Motoren- und Turbinen-Union Munchen GmbH, West Germany); NLR (Nationaal Lucht- en Ruimtevaartlaboratorium, The Netherlands); RAE (Royal Aircraft Establishment, Great Britain); Rolls-Royce (Great Britain) and SNECMA (Société Nationale ďEtude et de Construction de Moteurs ďAviation, France); RWTH (Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen, West Germany); and University of Utah (United States) to derive a loading standard for fighter aircraft engine disk usage.
The sequence was designed to contain the characteristics that are determinants of cyclic fatigue in the form, frequency, and application typical of actual operations. It represents a unique standard for low cycle fatigue (LCF) and crack growth experiments, and enables quantitative insights to be gained into the sequencing effect at moderate experimental effort.
The subject of the paper is the basic approach used in the development process. The paper also adds a few application notes.
