Description

Among the concerns of the electric power generation industry is that related to the structural integrity of their equipment; in particular, the turbine due to the involved costs in case of failure. Although different parts of a turbine may fail, the rotor is the component to care about since, on one hand, it is subject to large stresses and, on the other, its failure may lead to severe damages; therefore, various tools have been developed to provide information for its safe operation [1].
