Polygonal turbine casings which have inherent resistance to deformation by virtue of their many flat sides taking thermal loads etc. in compression or tension, are improved upon by the present invention by way of assembling the casing so as to pre-tension its flats to such an extent that any compressive loads which are felt, never reach a value which would entirely negate the tensile load.
A polygonal casing suitable for use as a gas turbine engine bearing housing and comprising a hollow hub, a plurality of spokes radiating outwardly from said hub in equiangularly spaced relationship, each spoke terminating in a flanged cap, each pair of adjacent flangeed caps being joined via their flanges by a plate which is straight at least in a direction peripherally of the casing and wherein said flanged caps and plates comprise a sub assembly which is shrunk onto the spoke ends so as to exert a tensile stress of such magnitude on said plates that un...
