depending on engine size. These high rotational speeds
induce high-stress factors, which must be overcome for
safe and efficient operation. The turbine is constructed
of a disk and blades, each of which is carefully balanced
and weighed. The blades (sometimes called buckets)
are attached to the disk by a fir tree design (fig. 10-17).
This design provides for different rates of expansion
between blade and disk. The blades are attached axially
by fasteners or rivets (fig. 10-17). Turbine blades can be
open at the ends or constructed to form a shroud. The
