The purpose and intent of Subcommittee E-33E's effort, the reporting objectives, and the limitations inherent in the reported findings and recommendations are reviewed since these factors are the basis of the information contained in this document. SAE E-33E Subcommittee was formed to assess the level of industry experience that exists in the area of thrust determination during aircraft time-variant operating conditions. A prime objective was to provide a center for gathering expertise and to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and viewpoints. The committee recognized that a practice for the rigorous treatment of time-dependent thrust did not exist and that several critical aspects of its accounting would need to be investigated.
The overall objectives and approach described in this document were intended to provide guidance and benchmarking. Readers may refer to this approach and practice guidance for application, comparison, or extension to their specific related tasks, using the appropriate technical data, requirements and the most current applicable references. The general approach and guidance are considered stable in regards to the above stated intent.
