A Methodology for Predicting Torsional Fatigue Crack Initiation in Large Turbine-Generator Shafts

Abstract

This document presents results of a three-year program in which an analytical method was developed to estimate the cumulative fatigue damage sustained by a turbine-generator shaft system during a torsional transient. The work was conduted at the Steam Turbine-Generator Engineering and Manufacturing Department of the General Electric Company undr the… (More)
