A complex software tool (FRAME) for assessing lifing parameters as well as reliability and availability performance of gas turbines is presented in this paper. The herein described tool is developed by the authors, whereas the implemented know-how originates from field experience gained by condition and health monitoring of gas turbines operating offshore in oil industry. The authors focus on structure, functionality as well as possible benefits of its use. In the second part of the work results of several simulation runs and parameter variations are presented. Although the primary goal is to test the utility and functionality of the presented tool, interesting and relevant results are obtained. Due to space limitations we restrict ourselves to discuss washing/time interdependence when presenting the findings herein.
