- Cracks initiate inside the blade slot area
- Physical access is limited
- Borescope and Eddy Current inspections will not produce acceptable Probability of Detection
- Ultrasonic inspection is most likely known method to produce acceptable results. Other inspection methods would be considered, if probability of detection can be established
