The objective of the research and development program reported by this paper was to decrease the specific fuel consumption of a small gas-turbine engine by means of an increase in pressure ratio alone. Development of a centrifugal compressor is presented, with a general description of equipment, methods, and special problems met during the tests. Results showed the required decrease in specific fuel consumption and pointed up the advantages of a straightforward development program.
