The Use of Supersaturated Experiments in Turbine Engine Development

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]When designing complex mechanical systems, understanding as rapidly as possible the factors that contribute to their performance is vital. Supersaturated statistical design (SSD) offers a useful way to investigate many factors with very few experiments. The use of SSD is demonstrated in the detailed design phase of a turbine engine. Three SSDs and three orthogonal two-level factorial experiments were used as screening experiments. Results indicate that SSDs are a reasonable analysis choice, since few active factors are missed.
