Why engine testing is necessary?

Why an engine needs a test? To find out performance before mass production and fitting it into a vehicle. Historically, the test basically was to find out the power and fuel consumption, also to test effectiveness of cooling, vibration and noise, lubrication, controllability, etc.

What is rig test?

A test rig is a complete system that controls, measures, and evaluates a device according to defined testparameters. It includes both hardware and software. Sensors, instruments, and actuators are integrated using data acquisition hardware or protocols.

How many horsepower is CFM56?

The CFM International CFM56 (U.S. military designation F108) series is a French-American family of high-bypass turbofan aircraft engines made by CFM International (CFMI), with a thrust range of 18,500 to 34,000 lbf (82 to 150 kN).

What are the types of engine testing?

Types of Tests The two most common type of tests used for engine development are the step test and the “acceleration” or sweep test.

How is an engine tested?

Engineers link the engine with an electric engine brake and connect it to the required measurement devices, fuel supply and cooling water supply. The engine test is an automated operation controlled by an automatic system. Another area of expertise for the Engine Centre engineers is gearbox development and testing.
