Description

Evaluation of the critical nature of interior cracks in turbine rotor component web regions in order to assess the remaining service life of the parts requires accurate determination of the crack sizes in order to perform fracture mechanics analysis. This analysis is important both in order to retire critically defective parts and in order to return components to service if detected flaws are sub-critical. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate several techniques for sizing internal cracks in planar geometries.
