The regeneration of highly loaded turbine blades causes small variations of their geometrical parameters. To determine the influence of such regeneration-induced variances of turbine blades on the nozzle excitation, an existing air turbine is extended by a newly designed stage. The aerodynamic and the structural dynamic behavior of the new turbine stage are analyzed. The calculated eigenfrequencies are verified by an experimental modal analysis and are found to be in good agreement.

Typical geometric variances of overhauled turbine blades are then applied to stator vanes of the newly designed turbine stage. A forced response analysis of these vanes is conducted using a uni-directional fluid-structure interaction approach. The effects of geometric variances on the forced response of the rotor blade are evaluated. It is shown that the vibration amplitudes of the response are significantly higher for some modes due to the additional wake excitation that is introduced by the geometrical variances e.g. 56 times higher for typical MRO-induced variations in stagger-angle.
