Gas turbine blades Dimentions and Design of aircraft engine

  1. Oct 21, 2009 #1

    I am working on gas turbine design to investigate fatigue and creep failure and i want to design gas turbine blades for aircraft engine. I need to find out the dimention for CAd design
    if anyone help me that what should be the dimention of these blades and how many blades attached to roter disc. i also want to find out speed of these baldes means some calculation is well

    Chances are no one is going to give you a blade profile. If you're just doing tutorials/testing, then just grab a NACA profile and extrude it up a distance that you think is reasonable. Then, model up a dummy shroud and do a cyclic analysis.
