The integrated theoretical and experimental efforts of the Rotor Burst Protection Program (RBPP) are providing the needed design data and material evaluations to assist any turbomachine manufacturers to provide satisfactory, protective systems without imposing large weight penalties on the equipment. The need for the RBPP is clearly indicated by the uncontained failure statistics included. Experimental observations are made relative to such important factors as fragment type, blade effects, ring plastic growth, ring restraint, fragment energy distribution, ring cross section, and radial clearance. Transient ring response computer codes being developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are described.
