Tutorial No. 9 - Containment Test

Turbine Blade Failure

Ansys Tutorial by CADFEM: What happens if a blade comes loose from the turbine? Would the housing withstand the strain, and would it retain the blade? Or would the blade penetrate this so-called containment vessel? A special type of crash analysis, employed with turbines and other rapidly rotating components, (to ensure safety even in worst-case scenarios,) is carried out here using LS-Dyna.
