Blade Frequency Testing Service

Let our test services consultants help with your blade frequency testing.

Our Blade Frequency services include:

  • Turbine blade natural frequencies
  • Compressor blade natural frequencies
  • Gas and steam turbine blades
  • Fixed and free-free boundary conditions
  • Blade group frequency testing
  • Quality assurance testing

SimuTech provides a blade frequency testing service for new, refurbished or reverse engineered turbine blades (buckets) to ensure that their natural frequencies are within specifications. This is especially critical for longer tuned last stage steam turbine blades that are susceptible to high-cycle fatigue failure due to resonance during operation.

SimuTech performs on-site testing of blades and blade groups on rotors.

Our blade frequency testing proves valuable for quality assurance of industrial gas turbine (combustion turbine) blades.

Excitation techniques include:

  • Modal hammers
  • Shakers
  • Piezoelectric actuators
  • Acoustic horns

Response measurement techniques include:

  • Accelerometers
  • Laser vibrometer
  • Microphones

SimuTech also has extensive experience with vibration test fixture design.
