When gas and steam turbines are in use, the blade profiles can be thinned by corrosion or erosion and thickened under the influence of deposit formation, thus causing a reduction in efficiency and lifetime. During the production of turbine blades, it is possible that the profiles often become thinner or thicker than the given specified profiles, also causing a decline in efficiency. In addition, the production costs of turbine blades are, to a considerable extent, dependent on the manufacturing tolerances. This report details the effects of thinning and thickening of the profiles on the efficiency, the drop, and the mass flow of multi-stage axial turbines.
