Regeneration-induced Variance of Aeroelastic Properties of Turbine Blades
In research project C4 of “Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 871” (www.sfb871.de) the influence of regeneration-induced variances on the aeroelastic behavior of turbine blades is investigated. These geometric variances directly affect the excitation and the vibration behavior of turbine blades.
In the second funding period, the goal is to investigate the influence of geometric variances on the aeroelastic behavior of turbine blades under the aspect of multi-stage effects and the effects of a varied gap experimentally and numerically. The insights gained from this process should help to define maximum permissible geometric variances for the blading and for the radial gap and thus to optimize the regeneration process.
