36 V. Structure & Dynamics

37 V-1. Blade Vibration Blade Vibrations  Forced Vibration  Arises from the movement of the rotor through stationary disturbances such as upstream stator wakes, support struts, inlet distortions, or by forcing functions such as rotating stall.  Leads to high stresses and failure when the excitation frequency coincides with blade natural frequency.  Almost all the sources must be harmonics of the rotating speed of engine.  Flutter  Arises by aerodynamic effects in the axial compressor.  Occurs at frequencies that are not multiples of engine order and at different locations on the compressor operating map. Vibration Modes  Natural Modes  Occur at characteristic frequencies determined by the distribution of mass and stiffness resulting from the variable thickness of the blade area.

38  Typical Vibration Modes  Flap Modes  Torsional Modes  Disk Modes  The natural frequency or rotor vibration  Reduced with increasing temperature  Because of reduction in Young’s Modulus  Increased at high speed  Because of centrifugal stiffening Rotor blade with 1F vibration mode Rotor blade with 1T vibration mode

39  Typical vibration mode of a rotor in holographic image  Campbell Diagram  A design tool to estimate whether engine operates in resonance condition or not.  Engine order : Excitation frequency  Resonance condition : Coincidence of a natural frequency with exciting frequency

40 V-2. Stresses on Blade Centrifugal Stress  Centrifugal Tensile Stress  Limiting rotor tip speed and hub-tip ratio (i.e., blade length)  A factor in the hot section of gas turbines in conjunction with creep effects  The maximum centrifugal stress occurs at the blade root.  Centrifugal Bending Stress  Generated if the centers of gravity of shroud, foil, root are not located on the common radial axis. Gas Flow Induced Steady State Stress  Bending stress superimposed on the centrifugal stress  Proportional to the aerodynamic loading on blade Gas Flow Induced Alternating Stress  Caused by stator vane wakes and wakes from support struts, etc...

41 Thermal Stress  Blades are subjected to severe thermal stresses during transient conditions such as startup and shutdowns.  Typical thermal-mechanical cycle for a first stage turbine blade Blade Failure due to Overspeed  25% overspeed  56% increase in resulting stress Tension Compression Strain Metal Temperature Warm-up Acceleration Load Base Load Unload Shut-down

42 VI. Materials and Failure Modes

43 VI-1. Materials Typical Materials Compressor - Blades/Vanes : Cr-Alloy, Titanium (Forging, Fabrication) - Discs : Ni-Alloy (Forging) - Cylinders : Cast iron, Titanium (Forging, Casting, Fabrication) Combustor - Liner/Transition : Ni-Alloy, Hestalloy (Fabrication) - Casing : Steel (Fabrication, Casting) Turbine - Blades/Vanes : Ni-Alloy (Casting) - Discs : Ni-Alloy (Forging)

44 Issues Related to the Material Selection  High temperature material  100 o F  10% increase in power 2.4% increase in thermal efficiency  Historically, 30 o F/year ( )  Resistance to the material selection : Fatigue(HCF/LCF), Creep, Corrosion Requirements & Considerations  Mechanical strength  Under 600 o F : Yield and endurance for low temperature  Above 600 o F: Creep and endurance for high temperature  Corrosion resistance  Low temperature  Hot corrosion  Workability / Availability  Casting/Forging  Machining

45 VI-2. Failure Modes in Gas Turbine Blading 42% of engine failures are related to the blade-problems Failure Modes in Gas Turbine Blading  Low Cycle Fatigue - Compressor and turbine discs  High Cycle Fatigue - Compressor/turbine blades & discs, compressor vanes  Thermal Fatigue - Turbine vanes, combustor components  Environmental Attack (Oxidation, Sulphidation, Hot Corrosion, Standby Corrosion) - Hot section blades & vanes, transition pieces, combustors  Creep Damage - Hot section blades & vanes  Erosion & Wear  Impact Overload Damage (Due to FOD, DOD or Compressor surge)  Thermal Aging  Combined Failure Mechanisms - Creep/fatigue, Corrosion/fatigue, Oxidation/erosion, etc.

46 Fatigue  High Cycle Fatigue (HCF)  Caused by aerodynamic excitations (Blade passing frequency) or by self-excited vibration and flutter.  Whereas fluctuating stresses may not be very high, the maximum stress at resonance can increase dramatically.  S-N (Stress vs. Number of cycles) curve  Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF)  Occurs as a result of machine start/stop cycles.  Associated with machines that have been in operation for several years.  Minute flaws grow into crack which result in rupture.  Predominant in the bores and bolt hoe areas of compressor and turbine disks which operate under centrifugal stresses.  Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue (TMF)  Associated with thermal stresses, e.g., differential expansion of hot section components during startup & shutdown.  Temperature variation in hot section blading : 200 o C/minute

47 Environmental Problems  High temperature oxidation  Occurs when nickel based superalloys are exposed to temperature greater than 1000 o F (538 o C).  Nickel-oxide layer on the airfoil surface  When subjected to vibration and start/stop thermal cycles during operation, nickel- oxide layer tends to crack and spall.  Sulphidation  A reaction which occurs when sulpher (in fuel) reacts with oxygen and attacks the base metal.  Particular concern when it is found in the blade root region or along the leading or trailing edges, or under the blade shroud.  Hot corrosion  Combined oxidation-sulphidation phenomena of hot section parts.  Standby corrosion  Occurs during a turbine shutdown and as the result of air moisture and corrosive being present in the machine.  Blade fatigue strength is significantly reduced by corrosion.

48 Creep  Occurs when components operates over time under high stresses and temperature.  Creep Curve  Creep-sensitive parts in engine  Hot section parts and the final stages of high pressure ratio compressors.  Mid span region of the airfoil which experiences the highest temperature.  Disk rim region where high stresses and temperature can cause time dependent plastic deformation. 15 o C increase in blade metal temperature cuts creep life by 50%.

49 Erosion/Wear  Particulate Erosion  Compressor  Particle size causing erosion : 5~10 microns  Reduction in the surge margin can occur if the tips get severely eroded.  Hot Gas Erosion  Turbine  Occurs when the cooling boundary layer on the blade surface breaks down even for short periods of time or cooling effectiveness drops.  The surface roughness of the blade contacted by the hot gas are subjected to high thermal stress cycles.  After several cycles, damage takes places and the increased roughness (erosion) worsens the problems.  First stage turbine vane Combined Mechanism  Corrosion  reduce blade section size and drop the fatigue strength  Erosion in the blade attachment regions  reduce damping causing increased vibration amplitudes and alternating stresses
