This paper covers the design and use of an instrument for determining blade-tip clearances of axial-flow compressors. The development of the measuring head and control circuits for operating the probe-type head and the results obtained from the use of this instrument are covered with illustrations and graphs which show clearances in axial-flow compressors under various operating conditions.
