Abstract:

From a gas turbine engine compressor spool of Ti-17 alloy, cylindrical unnotched specimens and flat double edge notched specimens were machined and fatigue-tested. The flat double edge notched specimens were also subjected to electrical potential drop measurements. The microstructure and fracture surface morphology of the representative specimens were examined. The variation of fatigue life, N, with applied stress range, delta s, was described by an equation of the form log N a b delta s. The variation of normalized crack voltage, VV sub oV sub RV sub Ro, with normalized crack length, aw, was given by an equation of the form VV sub oV sub RV sub Ro A A sub 1 aw A sub 2 awsq A sub 3 aw cu. Keywords Titanium alloys Compressor spools Electrical potential Fatigue crack initiation FractureMechanics Stress range Crack length.
