Root assemblies for rotor blades include a root portion having an inner surface and an outer surface, wherein the root portion is configured to extend from an airfoil portion of the rotor blade. The root assemblies further include at least one external structural connection support connected to at least the inner surfa...
A turbine rotor blade used in a gas turbine engine, which includes an airfoil having a tip at an outer radial edge, is described. The airfoil includes a pressure sidewall and a suction sidewall that join together at a leading edge and a trailing edge of the airfoil, the pressure sidewall and the suction sidewall extend...
THIS INVENTION CONCERNS IMPROVED CUTTING TEETH FOR CIRCULAR DISK SHAPED TOOLS SUCH AS CIRCULAR SAWS OR SIDEMILLING CUTTERS FOR CUTTING OR SLOT-MILLING OR FOR KEY-WAY MILLING OF METALLIC MATERIAL. THE CUTTING TEETH INCLUDE BEVELS OR FACETS ARRANGED SYMMETRICALLY RELATIVE TO THE SAW BLADE MIDDLE PLANE SO THAT THE CORNERS...
Methods of manufacturing rotor blades for a wind turbine and rotor blades produced in accordance with such methods are disclosed. In one embodiment, the method includes forming a first spar cap of the rotor blade from a first resin material. Another step includes placing the first spar cap within a first shell mold of ...
A system for monitoring health of a rotor is presented. The system includes a processing subsystem that generates a measurement matrix based upon a plurality of resonant-frequency first delta times of arrival vectors corresponding to a blade and a first sensing device, and a plurality of resonant-frequency second delta...
The invention relates to a drive-out device for driving out blades, in particular compressor blades, retained in a form-fit manner on a rotor disk, comprising a frame, a rotary table, in particular a lifting rotary table, and an impacting unit, which is retained on the frame and which has a drive-out ram and an impacti...
A rotor for an axial flow, elastic fluid turbine apparatus. The rotor has a rotating shaft having a plurality of circumferentially spaced rotating blades thereon. Each blade has a platform portion having a convex arcuate surface and a concave arcuate surface. The convex arcuate surface has a radius greater than the rad...
A row of moving blades for a steam turbine has moving blades elongated radially which are arranged peripherally around and secured to a turbine rotor. The row also has an intermediate support structure for holding the blades to each other at a radially intermediate position. The support structure has a shape of a strea...
A vibration damper between outer platforms of adjacent composite-material blades of a rotor wheel of a turbine engine, the damper including a strip for inserting lengthwise in tangential cavities that are formed facing each other in the outer platforms of two adjacent composite-material blades of a turbine engine rotor...
An adjustable pitch aircraft propeller has peripherally spaced composite blades each including an elongated core of expanded rigid foam material extending from a metal base member having a reduced neck portion and an outwardly projecting flange portion. A casing or skin of plastic resin impregnated fabric material surr...
A slurry separator utilizes the power inherent in the pressurized slurry from the slurry pump through a reaction nozzle to drive a rotor, with the slurry distributed through the nozzle being distributed over the surface of a conical grid. The rotor structure also drives squeegee-like blades which scrape the solids down...
The invention relates to a method of operating a wind turbine (1) to guard against oscillations of the wind turbine blades (5) when they are at a standstill or idling at low speeds, and to a wind turbine blade anti-oscillation apparatus (10). The apparatus comprises a releasably attachable blade cover (10) that provide...
The invention relates to a method for damping edgewise oscillations in one or more blades (5) of a wind turbine (1). The method comprising the steps of • detecting if one or more of the blades (5) oscillates edgewise during operation of the wind turbine (1), and • substantially cyclically generating a pitch angle d...
A plurality of separate shutter blades are arranged in a plane defined between a pair of base plates each having a shutter exposure aperture. Projections are provided on the base plates for urging the respective blades to be held in intimate contact with each other when the blades are in a position where they cover the...
A mechanism for cooling the platform for the drive blades of a gas turbine uses a simple configuration which reliably cools the platform. The mechanism includes cooling channels in the interior of the platform which open out from one of the cooling air channels for cooling the turbine blades and which exit the platform...
Each blade is fixed to the hub by the root part of the spar, arranged in the form of a loop surrounding a connection element bolted on the hub, with the interposition of rigid rings by a pin simultaneously fixing the hub on a drive sleeve transmitting thereto the driving torque of the central shaft. The hub comprises t...
An air conditioner includes an air outlet for discharging temperature-conditioned air.
