Big milestone has been achieved. Our H16 engine dedicated for accelerated cycling test has logged 60 hours and allmost 800 starts in our ground test cell. (allmost 1000 litres of JetA1 🙂 )
Engine is tortured by computer controlled short time intensive test runs to prove low cycle fatigue life and also by stair step tests to prove high cycle fatigue life.
The engine is still in perfect condition and we continue… 🙂
We are preparing now a diesel fuel test on the same engine.
