Possibility of increasing the service life of damaged blades

Results are given of an investigation of the effectiveness of a method of strengthening the working titanium alloy blades of a gas turbine engine compressor. It is established that the proposed strengthening method can lengthen to more than double the service life of damaged blades. In addition it is shown that in these blades, in comparison with nonstrengthened blades, cracks develop in a narrower zone and predominantly on the side of the inlet edge.
