Abstract:

The program objective is to develop and validate structural design criteria that account for the transient overloads by bird and ice impacts on turbine engine first-stage fancompressor blades. a design system structure was completed. Work was started on development of transient response models and impact loading models. Tests and analyses to be used to generate local leading edge damage design data were defined. Planning was initiated for gross structural damage investigations and structural element tests. Formulations of a matrix for parametric analysis was started. Three first stage blades were selected for modeling and testing. Author
