N2 - A clear need exists for methods of establishing the validity of gas turbine performance test results and diagnosing the causes of performance problems. Published methods depend on the results of simulating faults in complex mathematical models of the engines and are only capable of diagnosing combinations of faults previously simulated. A very simple mathematical modelling procedure is described which allows the analyst to test his own hypothesis of engine faults and so identify instrumentation errors and discover conditions not previously considered. Application of modelling to actual test data is demonstrated.
