Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics
Rob Sutton is a Principal Engineer with Atkins Limited and Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. He has extensive experience of structural analysis of airframe and gas turbine components. He has spent a number of years working for and with Rolls-Royce plc gaining experience in various aspects of aero engine vibration assessment from preliminary design requirements through to detailed analysis, testing and support to in-service engines.
Vibration is an inherent problem in rotating machinery and one of the main concerns when designing aero engine components. The effects of vibration can be an ongoing issue during aircraft service and are a common feature of failure investigations. The presentation will provide a practical guide to the tools and methods commonly adopted in the assessment of aero engine vibration. The presentation will focus on the analysis of blades and vanes covering the following areas.
