Formal Proof Techniques

Following these tests, the strain guaged blade 
sets were installed in an engine of a Boeing 
707 flying testbed.   The ensuing flight tests 
showed that the vibratory response in flight 
was considerably stronger than that apparent 
during the ground tests.   When using -3C1 
rated climb power, a response was observed at 
altitudes avove 10,000 feet which was at its 
most severe at altitudes between 25 and 30,000 
feet; vibratory stress levels of up to about 
80% of the endurance limit were observe
