Rotor Blade Dynamics

Rotating turbine blades used in compressors, turbines, fans, gas turbines, and other machinery perform optimally under a number of conditions. Vibrations and other dynamic phenomena can affect performance, leading to fatigue and failure. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) offers decades of expertise in the field of rotor blade dynamics with services that include blade vibration audits, machinery torsional dynamics, root cause failure analysis, and rotodynamic analysis and design audits.
