In the current study, experiments are performed on the aero-engine compressor blade model which is fastened to the disc using dovetail joint. Using the technique of photoelasticity, the highly stressed zone is found to be at the interface of the disc and the blade. Cyclic loading is then applied to the disc-blade assembly. Initial experimental observations showed formation of small cracks leading to crack growth and subsequent failure. In this region, a small crack is put and then the growth of crack during cyclic loading is studied till the failure of the specimen. The variation of stress intensity factor with respect to crack length and the number of cycles is evaluated for crack perpendicular to the contact length.
