Why TRASH a $15 million A380 engine?
Jet engines are tested in a variety of ways. One of the most important test is the “blade off” test. Manufacturers spend significant time and resources to ensure the destruction stays inside the casing. To test the design suitability, a blade is rigged with a small explosive charge that dislodges it and throws the engine off-balance. As the imbalance forces the assembly off center, the remaining blades contact the wall, are destroyed and the engine eventually grinds to a halt due to the failure. Although the engine is ruined, the damage is contained. Uncontained failures are rare, but there can be significant repercussions if it happens. Follow us on facebook :
