ROTOR BURST PROTECTION PROGRAM: STATISTICS ON AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINE ENGINE ROTOR FAILURES THAT OCCURRED IN U.S. COMMERCIAL AVIATION DURING 1975

This report has been prepared as part of the Rotor Burst Protection Program (RBPP), which is sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and conducted by the Naval Air Propulsion Test Center (NAPTC). The objective of the RBPP is to develop criteria for the design of devices that will be used on aircraft to protect passengers and the aircraft structure from the lethal and devastating fragments that are generated by gas turbine engine rotor bursts. Presented in this report are statistics on gas turbine rotor failures that have occurred in U. S. commercial aviation during 1975. These statistics are based on data compiled from the Flight Standards Service Difficulty Reports (SDR) that were published by the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
