Abstract Part of the Computer Aided Engineering and Manufacturing (CAEM) project is described. The objective of CAEM is to halve the time between commitment to an engine and entry into service. A two dimensional automatic finite element analysis facility is described. This is designed to contribute to the CAEM project objective by reducing the elapsed time to perform a high quality finite element analysis of the circumferentially averaged response of main engine rotor systems. This allows these analyses to be performed earlier in a design's evolution and increases confidence in the design prior to commitment to manufacture.
