Turbofan HPT blade research

  1. Aug 13, 2010 #1
    Hi all
    I recently found this thread helpful in my research
    and I figured you guys were a good option to help me find some more specific detail.
    I am currently looking at background research for an investigation of the surface finish characteristics of the high pressure turbine blades of turbofan motors.
    I am looking for general background information on; single crystal growth techniques, post casting machining procedures, Nickel superalloys, creep limiting data, plus anything else that would inform me in meaningful way about the field generally.
    I also need good data referring to the surface finish of the blades, from both a surface metrology point of view and a fluid dynamics perspective.
    I have searched and found some useful material but I have always found real people with experience in the field a far better bet than Google.
    I would be very grateful for any information or references you might be able to offer, and any more generalised comments you might make.
