Abstract
Florida Turbine Technologies (FTT), Inc. proposes the development of an Airfoil Replaceable Leading Edge (ARLE) for Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) fan blades that will increase sustainment. The proposed technology will allow the low-cost repair of FOD damaged leading edges without the need to subject the blades to detrimental thermal stresses associated with conventional welding methods. The technology has additional benefits for High Cycle Fatigue. The phase 1 program will prove the mechanical integrity of the structure using analysis and laboratory testing and define the maintenance advantages.
