The methods employed in shop balancing can have a profound impact on the resulting balance condition of the rotor. The impact of shop balance technique is most important when the rotor is relatively flexible and/or long as is common with most turbomachinery. The article contains excerpts from the pa...
Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of discs (at keyways, bores, and blade attachments) is caused by a combination of high surface stresses, a susceptible material and operational and shutdown environments. Design-related root causes are the most important and prevalent. They include high surface tensil...
Changes in ambient temperature have an impact on fullload power and heat rate of a gas turbine, but also on part-load performance and optimum power turbine speed. Manufacturers typically provide performance maps that describe these relationships for ISO conditions.   The excerpts are taken from a p...
