Out of the two HPTR blades examined, one was found to have surface defects at two locations; on the blade root platform and blade root. The defect on the blade root platform was found to have a network of shallow surface cracks and appears to have caused due to a minor mechanical damage. On the other hand, the defect on the root appeared to be a line defect resulted due to surface discontinuity and might have got created during casting. The other blade (No. BB-2-7484 B) did not show any defects.
