Abstract

Turbine engines are essential parts of aircraft and power plants because they operate in harsh mechanical and temperature environments, which increases the likelihood of their failure. This paper summarizes what is now known about the complex interactions between thermal loads and mechanical stresses in turbine engine breakdowns. Thermal aspects, such as thermal cycling, heat transfer methods, and cooling systems, are examined for their contributions to deterioration and structural integrity, while mechanical elements, such as fatigue, creep, and material characteristics, are investigated in relation to operating stresses. Proactive maintenance solutions are explored in conjunction with effective failure analysis techniques, like finite element analysis and non-destructive testing, to reduce risks and enhance reliability. Highlighted are recent developments in manufacturing processes, materials science, and computer modeling that point to interesting directions for further study and exploration. This review attempts to improve knowledge and guide ideas for improving turbine engine performance and longevity in difficult operating settings by thoroughly analyzing mechanical and thermal aspects.

Keywords: Turbine engines, aircraft and power plants, Thermal, thermal cycling
