This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides performance station designation and nomenclature systems for aircraft propulsion systems and their derivatives. The systems presented herein are for use in all communications concerning propulsion system performance such as computer programs, data reduction, design activities, and published documents.
ARP755 is hereby cancelled and is superseded by Aerospace Standard AS755. In the decades since its original publication, ARP755 has become one of the most widely used and followed Aerospace Recommended Practices among gas turbine engine industry organizations. Consistent identification of station locations and nomenclature are fundamental in facilitating and maintaining effective communication between engine manufacturers and customers. The definitions provided by ARP755 have also become a basis for other gas turbine standards documents commonly used throughout the industry. Consequently, the S-15 committee considers that the relevance and importance of its use warrant its designation as an industry standard. In order to maintain the widely recognized SAE document number ‘755’, the content of ARP755 is now published as an Aerospace Standard, AS755.
