The authors proposed an NDE method of detecting the crack developed in the turbine blade by means of digital holographic microscopy (DHM). UT procedures sometimes have limitations in particular cases of in-service-inspections such as the detection and sizing of a creep crack developed in the air-cooled casting blade of the combined cycle gas turbine. The local displacement at the blade surface near the crack during a mechanical loading is different from that of a non-cracked blade. This small different can be detected by DHM. The authors discussed whether this difference affected by the mechanical load between the cracked blade and the non-cracked is detectable by means of DHM or not. In this paper, the authors verified the practical validity of the proposed NDE method using the finite element analyses.
