Abstract


It is no coincidence that air travel remains the safest method to move over long distances. The high safety marks achieved in the aerospace industry are the result of great efforts in engineering and quality assurance. Because of the enormous testing requirements for jet engine components, a large portion of these tests are performed by outside firms which support the engine manufacturers. This seminar will look at advances in jet engines and the tests which are performed in support of this industry.
