Turbine Failure And Reconstruction.
This paper is an extended case history of a turbine catastrophic failure due to stress corrosion and the reconstruction of the turbine, compressor, gearbox, and the drive motor after a fire. Wheel stresses and the design upgrades to minimize the potential for failure while reducing the subsequent damage if a failure occurred of the complete system will be discussed.
