The paper describes a general program which has been developed for the prediction of the transient performance of gas turbines. The program is based on the method of continuity of mass flow. It has been applied successfully to a wide range of aero gas turbines, ranging from single to three-spool and from simple jet to bypass types with or without mixed exhausts. The results for three of these engine types are illustrated. Computing times are reasonable, increasing with the complexity of the engine.

A parallel paper describes the inclusion of thermal effects in the prediction program.
