• Foreign object damage can be responsible for an initiation of failure in gas turbine engines

  • Peridynamic modeling provides results for fatigue strengths of blade after impacting with a projectile

  • Such results can be used to quantify the effects of impact angle, leading edge radius, and wedge angle
