Abstract
This Phase II program will focus on completing the devleopment of X-ray diffratction techniques for measurement of residual stress in high stress locations on DS and SX gas turbine blades. The program will also design and build prototype NDE system for beta site testing at a overhaul depot for measurement of residual stress in used blades before they are returned to the engine. The prototype system and beta site testing will enable the research team to incorporate lessons learned into the initial production systems to enable commercialization of the product during a future Phase III program to quaify the inspection technique and equipment.
