AbstractA test cell correlation program was carried out by the General Electric Company (GE) to establish a relationship between the performance of a designated F404 gas turbine engine in the National Research Council of Canada (NRCC) test cell No.5 and the GE test cell 108 at Lynn, Massachusetts. General Electric reported on the test results and provided a test cell correlation method. The test data and methods have been subsequently analyzed. Simplified methods were examined to provide ready means of correlating other test facilities. Two correlation methods are proposed which compare well with the manufacturer's results.
