Problematic. At adaptation of a design of discs of rotor of air gas-turbine drives (GTD) it is necessary to conduct, in particular, strength calculations for what to create the computer models corresponding to stated designs (delineations) and operation conditions. If creation of a geometrical part of model does not call special difficulties the algorithm of creation of an is finite-element grid models for carrying out of calculations of performances of the disc stress-strain conditions (SSC) with blades can be modified taking into account development of programs for calculate.

Research objective. To offer the algorithms allowing with the set exactitude to calculate performance of the SSC of discs with blades on personal computers, and also to represent outcomes in the form of schedules of type "surface".

Realization technique. On an example of the disc of 2nd stage of the compressor of GTD the algorithm of construction of a three-dimensional is finite-element grid of the disc of GTD from the separate blocks which have been "pasted together" in a unified grid has been created. Numerical calculations (a contact problem of thermoelasticity, isotropic materials) are carried out. For preparation of construction of schedules of type "surface" the interface program of transformation of the table of columns in the two-dimensional table is created.

The results of research. Are created and explicitly techniques of reaching of research objectives are described.

Conclusions. The created techniques allow to carry out on the limited computer powers exact enough control calculations of discs with blades in three-dimensional statement, to conduct visualisation of distribution of stresses and contact forces of a zone of a contact "disc-blades" in the form of schedules of type "surface".
