Salyut finds the solution to the problem of creating blisk

Specialists and the state research center Federal State Unitary Enterprise the P.I. Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Engine Building (TsIAM) are the first to solve the problem of creating blisk turbines, reducing the mass of the construction by 30%.

In the framework of filling a state contract on an agreement on joint work employees of the science and research institute of technology and organization of engine production (an affiliate of the Salyut factory) and TsIAM have carried out research on creating a blisk turbine, which has enabled a 30% reduction in the mass of the construction.

This is a big technical accomplishment, which has huge significance for the countrys economy. We can speak of a fundamental solution to this problem, said Nikolay Abraimov, doctor of technical sciences, professor, head of the department of nanosystems and electrical methods at the science and research institute of technology and organizing engine production.

Reducing the mass of the flying apparatus is the main problem in aviation. Specialists from the engine-building field have been looking at the issue of creating a blisk turbine for more than 40 years. But only now have they been able to come up with a project to build a blisk engine with a significant reduction in mass. The development, planning, and resolution of technical issues were all organized at TsIAM. The working technology for making the turbines was developed at Salyut.

At present the technology is undergoing further development by specialists at both companies.

United Engine Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OBORONPROM. UEC includes more than 85% of leading companies specializing in the development, mass production, and servicing of gas turbine technology, as well as key companies  selectors of the industry. One of UECs priorities is implementing comprehensive development programs for the industry with new technologies meeting international standards
