This paper will discuss a study of an innovative design for an advanced turbine rotor that could have a great impact on future engines. The design challenge is to provide a minimum weight turbine rotor system that can withstand beyond state-of-the-art levels of (turbine annulus area multiplied by speed squared). An limit has been reached for high-pressure turbine (HPT) disks configured in conventional (single web) geometry with state-of-the-art nickel alloys. The problem has reached the point where increased has been declared a “break-through” technology. The twin-web disk has the potential to provide this break through. This paper will present the history of this turbine rotor design, analytical results, material/component processing, and concept validation results. All work was performed under an Air Force sponsored program entitled “Composite Ring Reinforced Turbine” (CRRT).
