This paper deals with the stabilizing effects of dry friction on torsional blade flutter. A lumped parameter model with single degree of freedom per blade has been used to represent the rotor stage. The well-known cascade theories for incompressible and supersonic flows have been used to determine the allowable increase in fluid velocity relative to the blade. It has been found that the effectiveness of friction dampers in controlling flutter can be substantial.
