Abstract : A fluidic temperature sensor was designed and evaluated in a 2400 degrees F cascade test rig to establish its feasibility as a turbine inlet temperature sensing device. The cascade test rig was designed and developed as part of a program to advance the technology of a small 2400 degrees F uncooled turbine component (Volumes I and II). The fluidic sensor evaluation included procurement and analytical evaluation of a fluidic sensor design, selection of materials for a breadboard-type sensor to fit the requirements of the 2400 degrees F cascade test rig, checkout and calibration of the sensor on a bench test rig, and transient and steady-state testing of the sensor in the 2400 degrees F cascade test rig. It was concluded that without additional research and development efforts, it is not feasible to use the tested fluidic temperature sensor in a 2400 degrees F turbine.
