The effects of centrifugal force and operating temperature on the stress and creep deformation of rotating micro-turbo rotors are studied in this work. The thermal-mechanical- creep coupled finite element model provided in the MARC package is employed. The variation of stresses and creep strain distributions in turbo blades made of different materials, e.g. stainless steel (A304L), Ti-alloy (Ti-2411) and two ceramics (SiC and SiN3 ) are analyzed and compared. The effect of rotating speed on the natural frequencies of the micro-turbine with different turbo-blade materials are also evaluated and compared in this study. Numerical results indicate that the strength and dynamic behavior of the micro-turbo rotor is very sensitive to the material of turbo blade.
