The Garrett/Ford AGT101 program has made significant progress during 1984 in ceramic component and engine test bed development, including initial ceramic engine testing. All ceramic components for the AGT101 [1644K (2500F)] engine are now undergoing development. Ceramic structures have been undergoing extensive analysis, design modification, and rig testing. AGT101 [1644K (2500F)] start capability has been demonstrated in rig tests. Also, 1644K (2500F) steady-state testing has been initiated in the test rigs to obtain a better understanding of ceramics in that environment.

The ceramic turbine rotor has progressed through cold spin test 12,040 rad/sec (115,000 rpm) and hot turbine rig test, and is currently in initial phases of engine test. Over 400 hours of engine testing is expected by March, 1985, including approximately 150 hours of operation and 50 starts on the 1422K (2100F) engine. All activities are progressing toward 1644K (2500F) engine testing in mid 1985.
