Title: FAN BLADE ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates generally to a fan blade assembly. In an embodiment, the fan blade assembly includes an airfoil having a forward edge covered by a sheath. The airfoil and the sheath are made from dissimilar conductive materials. A sacrificial anode layer is applied to at least a portion of the sheath so that the sacrificial anode layer will corrode instead of the airfoil.
