Determination of stresses in gas-turbine disks subjected to plastic flow and creep

M. B. Millenson, S. S. Manson
Jun 1948

A finite-difference method previously presented for computing elastic stresses in rotating disks is extended to include the computation of the disk stresses when plastic flow and creep are considered. A finite-difference method is employed to eliminate numerical integration and to permit nontechnical personnel to make the calculations with a minimum of engineering supervision.
