Abstract : Several possibilities of application of thrust determination in an aircraft are shown. Thrust indication can be employed during the test phase of an aircraft but also later for engine monitoring, engine and flight control and, finally, for flight optimisation. Indirect thrust measuring methods are described and the relation between measurement parameters and thrust is presented. The sensitivity of measurement errors of the methods are considered. Finally, the problems of a direct thrust measurement are raised and the requirements to the engine mounting necessary for it are reported. A direct thrust measurement is most easily expected to solve the described set of problems. (Author)
