Abstract


Flexible gas turbine operation requires adapted hot gas parts design and lifetime assessment methods. The High Temperature Cyclic Test Rig (HTCTR) is developed to cyclically test internally cooled components from combustor and turbine sections of gas turbines in close-to-engine conditions for a wide range of operating conditions in order to improve component lifetime management. These advanced tests should serve as basis for new model development and validation for conditions that are more representative of those in an engine than the standard material specimen tests.
