In rotating machinery, notably in modern high efficiency compressors, a critical requirement for optimal performance consists in minimizing radial clearances between the rotating bladed disk and the casing. This solution significantly increases the risks of contact between rotating bladed disk and casing and may lead in specific conditions to catastrophic behavior (component failure, etc.). The physical phenomena and mechanisms involved in blade-casing contact interaction situations are still misunderstood. In order to highlight these mechanisms, specific experiments have been performed on an experimental multi-stage compressor of a turbojet with dedicated dynamic and thermal instrumentations. For all configurations tested, major damages are noticed: blades had cracks and the abradable coating of the casing was heavily machined. Results show that the blade failure refers to fatigue limit with first natural mode excitation of the blade. The paper is focused on the analysis of the successive stages of blade dynamic response before the failure. It is shown that this response is influenced by the variations of the blade-casing contact conditions. These conditions are linked to the thermomechanical behavior and wear of coating, illustrated by high thermal levels and non uniform wear profile. Coupling between thermomechanics, wear and dynamic has to be considered to highlight the transient mechanisms leading to the cases of blade failure.
