Abstract
Monitoring any of several parameters improves the ability to detect any potential safety and performance related problems associated with aircraft gas turbine engines. Instant reporting of fuel or engine oil leaks provides engine operators the ability to make judicious decisions as to how the engine should be run under given faulty condition and engine maintains the ability to make timely decisions about engine maintenance. A feasibility study on the use of an ultrasonic based approach to engine fuel or oil leak monitoring is presented. This approach has the potential to be used in real-time applications.
