BLADE is finite element based program designed to evaluate turbine blade assemblies
BLADE is finite element based program designed to evaluate turbine blade assemblies. With a minimal amount of effort, a user can easily create and analyze a variety of turbine blade configurations for stress, natural frequency and life characteristics.

There are three products in the BLADE family:

  • BLADE-ST (steam turbines)
  • BLADE-GT (aircraft gas turbines and compressors)
  • BLADE-CT (land-based combustion turbines)

The primary difference between the three products is the types of geometric features that can be modeled with each. (Rugged steam turbine blades look quite different light-weight gas turbine blades, and have connection methods not found in the other types of turbines)

Key Benefits

  • Dedicated pre-processing for rapid model development
  • Automatic assignment of boundary conditions
  • Push button operation of analysis options
  • Interactive post-processing for results visualization
