Air film damping (AFD) has been a research focus for the fatigue damage suppression problem of aeroengine blade decades ago; however significant progress has not been made in the past decade. In this paper, we present a theoretical model and experimental analysis about this technology. The dissipation mechanism of the AFD is established by assumption that the viscous gas inside the thin air film is Poiseuille flow and the energy dissipation equation of AFD with open boundaries is deduced and

The vibration measurements are performed by RC-3000 vibration exciter and detected by applying the contactless laser vibrometer system. The theoretical results consist with the experimental results, and both show that AFD appears promising performance in vibration suppression. We also present how the structure parameters, such as installation position, air film length and thickness, and thin skin thickness, influence the vibration suppression effect.
