Vibration diagnostics of damage belongs to the class of non-destructive methods, which usually do not take long time. However, the main problem of vibration diagnostics is relatively low sensitivity to the critical damage of fatigue crack type, which arises because of long time accumulation of plastic deformation. To improve the sensitivity and reliability of vibration diagnostics of damage two methods were considered. First method was based on the fact, that a characteristic feature of vibrations of structural elements with fatigue crack is the occurrence of non-linear resonances (sub- and super-harmonic) and significant non-linearity of vibration response at these resonances. Secon one – on the fact, that quite noticeable in certain cases increase of damping characteristic caused by a crack can be observed. Analytical and experimental studies of these methods were carried out as applied to the blades of aircraft gas turbine engines. As a result of the studies, the intensity of change in parameter of super-harmonic resonance and in damping characteristics at different parameters of crack was determined. Besides, the experimental techniques for vibration testing of turbine blades were developed. There was demonstrated, that the sensitivity of both considered methods of vibration diagnostics is several orders of magnitude higher than the sensitivity of conventional methods based on the change in natural frequencies and mode shapes, and they can be effectively used for the diagnostics of blades on the stage of engine repair. All the other conditions being equal, second-order superharmonic resonance demonstrates a higher sensitivity to the presence of cracks than the damping characteristic. The smallest crack with an area of 0.2% considered in the work causes a reliably recorded non-linearity of vibration response at superharmonic resonance of order of 2/1. At this the change of damping characteristic slightly exceeds the error of experiment.

Keywords: Damage detection; super-harmonic resonance; damping characteristic; aircraft gas turbine engine; blades of turbine.

History of journal:

In June 1994 the 2nd International Scientific and Technical Conference "Application of vibrations for technological purposes" was organized on the basis of Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute. Leading experts in this field, noting the significant contribution to the school of Vibration Engineering under the leadership of P. S. Bernyk, proposed to create a professional all-Ukrainian scientific and technical journal "Vibration in engineering and technology..The journal was foundedat Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute and P.S. Bernyk was elected to be the chief editor .
For all these years (since 1994) theJournal "vibration in engineering and technology" published  94 issues wherestudy of vibration effects, the creation of progressive energy saving technologies and equipment for their implementation were highlighted.
Currently Kaletnik H.M  PhD , professor, academician NAAS is the chief editor of the "Vibrations in engineering  and Technology"
The journal "Vibration in Engineering and technology", which has no analogues on the territory of Ukraine, is well known abroad.
