Now run the model

- with the AnSyn Factors applied -
at the same corrected spool speed
as tested. This yields pressure ratios
that are very close to those during
the test.

following conditions is fulfilled:
W41Rstd = given W41Rstd (HP

Turbine Capacity)
W45Rstd = given W45Rstd (LP
Turbine Capacity)
T45 = Measured T45
T5 = Measured T5
Defining an Iteration

Assume that the fan model is

correct, for example. That means
the Fan Flow Factor is equal to 1
Calculate
This is now the start
