Proven methods for evaluating existing steam turbine design to select proper blade for failure-free steam turbine operationBlade Design and Analysis for Steam Turbinesdetails blade functionality and how it fits in relation to the complete steam turbine system as well as construction materials and methods, manufacturing processes, and design methods to estimate reliability of blades under fatigue and vibration. Blades are at the heart of process steam turbines used to generate electricity from wind, steam, gas, and solar hydrogen. The information in this book helps turbine designers, mechanical engineers, process equipment design/maintenance engineers, and buyers of turbines estimate the reliability of blades.Blade Design and Analysis for Steam Turbines Contains abbreviations and symbol interpretations Presents a blade life assessment methodology Includes 150 illustrations Covers practical aspects of designing and assessing tools Equips you with the knowledge base to select appropriate blade designsIn-depth, practical coverage: Performance Fundamentals & Blade Loading Determination; Construction of Blades and Attachments; Relevant Strength of Materials; Fundamentals of Vibration; Damping Concepts as Applicable to Turbine Blades; Vibration Behavior of Bladed Disk System; Evaluation Concepts for Vibration of Blades; Reliability Evaluation for Blade Design; Advanced Topics
