Joint partnership leads to successful swirl distortion testing

An AEDC test team and members of the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) partnered together recently at the Academy’s F109 turbofan test facility to apply swirl distortion to determine engine response in terms of aeromechanics, operability and performance. Testing was performed July 2017 using a fully functional and automatic swirl generator prototype to determine the response of the F109 engine to swirl with and without pressure distortion.
