Root Cause Failure Investigation of Two Blades from a Gas Turbine Stage 1 Compressor
- The analysis undertaken was to investigate two scenarios:
- The effect on the blade from the impact at a discrete location of an ice mass.
- The effect of a tip rub.
- The analysis confirms that a singular impact on one compressor blade can produce the physical distortion observed.
Lateral Rotodynamic Analysis for a Centrifugal Gas Compressor Dirven by a Gas Turbine
The analysis was conducted in conjunction with a retrofit project to replace the existing oil seals.
The analysis included:
- Tilt-pad bearing analysis.
- Undamped critical speed analysis.
- Damped unbalance response analysis.
- Stability analysis.
- Predicted that the compressor should have no operational vibration issues as a result of the new seal upgrade.
