Fatigue life prediction on Inco 718 part subjected to service induced damage

Project description

Novel methodologies will ensure stress and fatigue do not keep a potential winner down

Air travel is on the rise as increasing globalisation takes more and more people and cargo to the skies for business and pleasure. Clean Sky is the largest European research programme aimed at reducing the CO2, gas emissions, and noise produced by aircraft. Engines have a starring role to play in greener technologies for air flight. The contra-rotating open rotor (CROR) engine concept is one of the most promising. Now, the EU-funded FLECTION project is developing technologies to test the blade design for residual stresses and fatigue. Understanding the microscopic mechanisms leading to decreased fatigue life will support the development of experimental and computational methods to more accurately predict safe life of the selected CROR blade design and materials.
