Stress analysis of ceramic gas turbine blades by the finite element method. Part I.
Easterling, Lael Ray
MetadataShow full item record
The search for more efficient gas turbine engines has led to the proposal for the replacement of metal high temperature components with ceramic components . Essential to this effort is the numerical analysis of proposed designs . This thesis report describes the model discretization of a proposed blade design, the development of pre- and post-processors for the ADINA finite element code and the initial stress analysis of the modeled blade.
