O’Donnell Consulting performed a structural analysis and remaining life assessment of the main shafts on a hydroelectric plant. Inspection of the main shaft had detected linear indications at the outer surfaces of the shaft. Elastic fracture mechanics analyses indicated that the existing cracks could propagate to unacceptable levels. A solution was then designed, analyzed, and performed to extend the life of the shaft.
