Abstract

Failure analysis on turbine shaft produced with RHUS reinforced polyester polymer composite was successfully carried out in this article. Previous research on shaft failure analysis was studied and knowledge gap established. The turbine blades are subjected to maximum tangential stress of 2.5 N/mm2 at locations very close to the root of the blades; while displacements suffered at the tip of each blade on the account of ‘attack’ from nozzle jet have limiting value of 0.40 mm. Load vs. Deformation Simulation results reveal that, dynamically, both runner and shaft assembly of the turbine would survive design loadings under actual service condition.
