Rotorcraft Turboshaft Test Case- Rolls Royce AE 1107C Liberty

This test case is based on the Rotorcraft Turboshaft Template structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the AE 1107C. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the AE 1107C program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the AE 1107C nor has any attempt been made to simulate the mutilple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the rotorcraft turboshaft template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known turboshaft program.
