An approach for estimating deposition in gas turbines is described. This approach extrapolates deposition data from lower cost experiments than turbine engine or cascade tests. The purpose is a method to screen candidate fuels and turbine protection methods so that only the most promising need be evaluated in turbine tests. The deposition approach is applied to estimate deposition maintenance intervals for a tested fuel, evaluate benefits of hot gas cleanup, and provide fuel screening criteria.
