  4. Aerodynamic/Structural Mistuning Technologies for Assessing IBR/Blisk Repairs

    Amount: $749,993.00

    Blade-to-blade variations in frequencies lead to the phenomenon of mistuning. Even very small amounts of mistuning can cause some blades to vibrate much more than others. Mistuning can cause an amplif ...
