Two aspects of reliability assurance are discussed. First, this paper deals with the reliability design of emissions under transient conditions. The optimization was made from the simulation results of the relationship between the response of the variable combustor geometry to follow load changes and the resulting exhaust emission levels. The load variation pattern used in this investigation was that of the Japanese ten-mode regulation. Second, this paper describes the validity of the reliability design prepared for the ceramic liner of the combustor. A service life prediction was made for the liner on the basis of stress analysis results and fatigue parameters.
