Abstract : The patent relates to a device whereby the torque-transmitting connections between a turbine rotor and the individual turbine blades include centrifugally responsive vibration damping elements. The device has limited freedom to swing an individual coupling shafts between plates securing each blade to the rotor assembly. The torque transfer value varies as the speed varies, to damp vibrations due to speed fluctuations.
