Abstract: Health parameters play a vital role in determining the remaining useful life of engine components, ensuring safe and confident continual test trials during the development phase. Although enough care is taken to obtain the health parameter data throughout the engine test duration, there are chances of missing out a few for reasons beyond control. This paper aims at providing a feasible solution to mitigate the data loss by regenerating the health parameter trend. Least square approximation, data mapping with threshold and interpolation techniques have been attempted via software development for trend regeneration. Two tier data fusion software has been developed to gather the data required for trend regeneration. Considering strain for case study, using actual test trial data, software has been verified. Interpolation technique with the least error emerged as an optimal choice and ensuring acceptance of its estimated strain trend resulted in its confident usage enabling intended progressive research.
