6 0 0 . 3 Performance evaluation is based on total pressures, so the velocity pressure must be calculated and added to the static pressure to obtain the total pressure. If the velocity pressure is more than 5% of the pressure rise, it is determined by a pilot tube traverse. 6 0 0 . 4 Polytropic exponent is evaluated, and the polytropic eiriciency is calculated. 00 Guidelines For Field Modifications 7 0 1 . 1, a secondary purpose of this procedure is to provide guidelines to help the user to decide when modification should be considered.

Those persons who will make test observations should be part of the inspection team in order to become familiar with the equipment layout and the location of the test instruments to be observed. 4 0 5 . 6 . 2 All test probes, such as thermocouples and pitot tubes, should be installed and connected to their respective readout instruments. 4 0 5 . 6 . 3 Pressure gauges, clearly tagged as to in what location they belong, should be installed and connected to appropriate test points. Gauges should be of the appropriate range for the expected test conditions.
