Abstract

In aero-engines as well as industrial gas turbines, the drive to higher efficiency is steadily raising the pressures and temperatures in the engines, and this further increases the  challenge to instrumentation. Accurate measurements in the hot components of gas turbines (including combustion diagnostics) are recognized as a major need for the assessment of engine component health and performance. High temperature instrumentation is required not only during product development for the validation of new designs or component life prediction methods, but also in service for health monitoring and optimum engine control.

After some introductory basics on measurement chains, errors and uncertainties, these proceedings address the following topics: measurements of gas path pressures and temperatures including steady and unsteady measurement techniques, measurements of surface temperatures, measurements of blade tip clearance and blade vibration (strain gauges) at high temperatures.
