High Speed Compressor Blade Vibration Tests
The compressor test rig uses a small axial blisk from a 2 stage LTS101 Turboshaft Engine.
- A High Speed Philtec D63 Probe was attached to the shroud and pointed radially inward at the blade tips.
- Blade vibration can be detected directly from the deviation in expected arrival time curves for each blade.
