Derated Thrust

Thu Sep 28, 2000 10:38 pm

I was wondering at the other airlines, what is the maximum derate used? (ASMD Temp).

At Ansett, 60°C is used on the B762. That is about 95N1 at 15°C.

I believe the FAR's/CAR's/CAA etc specify minimum derates. Our company 757's (RB211) use data supplied by Jeppesen and for the most part, the highest assumed temperature allowed is in the 60-62C range. The maximum assumed tends to decrease with ambient temperatures lower than 20C.

Just a thumbnail explanation!

We can use 60 degrees as well in Cathay on the 747-400.

The Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department restricts derates to not more than 25% of fully rated thrust. This is why airlines, including ours quite often has engines derated in the certification process (Done by altering the computer programming in the aircraft), so that we can have a bigger derate, and in the long run save money.

What is meant is the temperature below the normal at the end of the turbine. Is that is?

Thank you,

Last I knew AA 767s=60C max assumed temp (AT) and 757s=62C AT.
MD90s=60C AT on virtually all flights.
