Finite Element Analysis of a Compressor Disk
Compressor disk is a key rotor part of aeroengines. Alone with the increase of thrust weight ratio of aeroengines, the work conditions of compressor disk are more and more rigor. So the stress level of compressor is very high nowadays. As we know that the stress analysis is a basic of age analysis and reliability analysis, Do a finite element analysis (FEA) is necessary before and after the compressor disks have been made. In this paper, a detail analysis was done with finite element method (FEM), and the stress distribution of disk we got was consistent with the real stress distribution. Also the FEA results show that the location of maximum stress is the failure site of the disk. It is useful work for further work.
