Component testing

Component testing: attention to the smallest detail

A perfect engine invariably is the compilation of perfect detailed parts. This is why MTU will only use components that have proved their value during testing. All mechanical component tests are invariably conducted under simulated environment and engine conditions with realistic loads. MTU performs tests on engine parts, such as disks, blades and vanes, casings and shafts, as well as engine accessories, such as control units and sensors.

Components subjected to testing:

  • Disks
  • Stator vanes
  • Rotor blades
  • Casings
  • Shafts
  • Bearings and other engine parts

Typical component tests:

  • Vibration analyses
  • Shaker tests on components and overall systems
  • HCF tests on rotor blades and stator vanes
  • Load tests on casings, shafts and stators
  • Bird strike tests
  • Ballistic impact tests
  • Casing containment tests
  • Overspeed or burst tests on disks
  • Endurance tests on disks and shafts
  • Rub-in tests on rotating components
  • Erosion tests
  • Leakage tests on seal systems
  • Functional bearing tests under load

Components are tested for:

  • Vibrational behavior
  • Functionality
  • Reliability
  • Life
  • Wear
