Bird ingestion is simulated by blade passage blocks in the incoming flow and the pressure field is obtained from a CFD code. The alternating pressure field corresponding to the identified critical speed of the first stage rotor blade is obtained from an FFT. A nonlinear damping model is developed using Lazan’s hysteresis law; the equivalent viscous damping model is determined as a function of reference strain amplitude in the given mode of vibration at the rotational speed. An iterative process is developed with the nonlinear damping model and the resonant stress and location is determined. The Fracture Mechanics approach is used to estimate the crack propagation life of the blade.
