The moving parts of the jet engine. The turbomachinery blades are mounted on a number of Rotors.
The disks provide structural fixing and resist the radial and axial forces generated by the airfoils in the fans. compressors, turbines.
Example: 600m/s Tip speed turbine at 200 CEdit
Axial compressor durms and stiffenersEdit
Blade-off failure analysisEdit
Shafts connect the functional parts and transfer forces from turbines to fans and compressors and to bearings.
Multi shaft DynamicsEdit
Materials, Manufacturing and AssemblyEdit
The rotors are supported on bearings.
Loading, Overloading, service life, lubrication
Roller and ball bearingsEdit
Bearing lubrication and coolingEdit
The pressure differentials between different rotating parts are maintained by seals.
