To improve the reliability of compressor stator blades of gas turbines, an analytical method for estimating their fatigue damage has been developed. This method is based on blade-vibratory-stress analysis, stress-peak counting, and use of actual environmental data. The blade-vibratory-stress analysis takes the superposition of multi-peaks of the stress spectrum into account. The numerically simulated stress showed better agreement with measured stress than that from a conventional stress analysis, which is based on frequency-response analysis considering a single peak of the lowest single eigen-vibration-mode. A time-domain stress history was synthesized from the blade-vibratory-stress analysis results. Furthermore, the fatigue damage of the blade under rotating stall was estimated by the linear-damage-rule from the stress-peak counting of the stress and from material data. The estimated fatigue-damage agrees well with the measured results. This agreement means that our new fatigue-damage-estimation method is more accurate than the conventional one.
