The test installation and the data acquisition system used in the aerothermodynamic development of the axial compressor for a new Ruston 6-MW industrial gas turbine are described. Developments in instrumentation techniques are discussed. Processing of the data is outlined and data are presented for a typical graphical output. The merits of the flexibility achieved, both for the aerothermodynamic test facility and the data acquisition system, are discussed. The potential of the installation for the development of other axial compressors is outlined.
