About the Edition

An annular turbine cascade was designed and manufactured for laser Doppler velocimetry and probe measurements in a small-scale rig. The purpose of the experiment was to determine the limitations of these measurements in a confined annulus, and to compare the experimental results with numerical predictions. Downstream probe surveys were conducted at a Reynolds number of 500000. Total pressure and temperature measurements were taken upstream of the test section, and hub static pressure was measured downstream of the cascade. A two-dimensional laser anemometer was used to obtain preliminary velocity field measurements for code validation. The two main problem areas identified were the type of seeding material used and the configuration of the optical access window. Flowfield characteristics were predicted using a three-dimensional viscous code, which were then compared to experimental measurements. The comparison showed that the numerical simulator predicted well the general features of the flow field that were measured in the experiment. Recommendations are made which would improve the mapping of the velocity field for a more complete code validation.

The facility allows an independent variation of Reynolds and Mach numbers, providing aerodynamic and heat transfer measurements in the region of interest for gas turbine design. The mass flow rate through the cascade at NGV design conditions (exit Mach number and Reynolds number × 10 6) is 38 kg/s and the pressure-regulated test. the annular sector cascade. Combining the strength of the annular cascade (real modeling of flow features, radial pressure gradient) it avoids excess preparation and operation costs thanks to reducing the flow channel to a sector rather than a full annulus. Flow periodicity is thus no longer inherently present but can be achieved artificially.

Figure shows the principle of ejector drilling. MWF is supplied to the inlet of the collet chuck. Then this fluid separates into two parts. The first part flows into the annular channel formed by the boring bar, called the outer tube and the inner tube. In the drill head, MWF flows outside through the radial holes made in the drill head so that it reaches the machining zone where it cools. Flowfield characteristics were computed using a three-dimensional flow solver with the numerical plane coincident with the experimental measurement location.

The purpose of the research was to devise laser anemometry measurement techniques in a confined annulus and improve the ability to compare numerical predictions with experimental results. Flowfield computations were completed using a viscous flow. The measurements were made using an ultra miniature ( mm Dia) 5-hole probe.

The measurement were made on 4 planes behind and one plane in front of the trailing and leading edge of the cascade respectively. The experimental results clearly show the influence of the flow structure on the evolution of the stream wise vorticities behind the blading.

This paper describes the time-varying aerodynamic interaction mechanisms that have been observed within a transonic high-pressure turbine stage; these are inferred from the time-resolved behavior of the rotor exit flow field.

It contains results both from an experimental program in a turbine test facility and from numerical predictions. A study of the influence of the two adjustable parameters of the model, the transition onset location and the spot generation rate, is conducted and it is found that it can predict laminar separation bubbles, measured on a NACA airfoil.

Additional results are presented for separation bubbles in an annular compressor cascade. An accurate assessment of heat transfer rates to turbine vanes and blades is an important aspect of efficient cooling system design and component life prediction in gas turbines.

Techniques have been developed at Oxford University which permit such measurements to be obtained in test rigs which provide short duration steady flow through a turbine cascade.

The temperature ratio between the gas. The schematic of the annular cascade endwall test section is shown in Fig. To ensure the flow periodicity, the annular cascade contained six vanes and five flow passages.

The flow periodicity of the annular cascade was proved to be acceptable using a multi-passage numerical model that was identical to the test section. However, EI-Batsh successfully compared the dimensionless velocities obtained by the experiment measurement and the numerical simulation using SST k-ω turbulence model in an annular cascade, and their comparison validated that, it is suitable using the SST k-ω turbulence model to simulate the fluid flow performance in annular turbine cascade.

The exit Reynolds number based on the blade axial chord is varied from × 10 5 to × 10 5 for a five blade linear cascade in a low speed wind tunnel. Unsteady wakes are produced using a spoked wheel-type wake generator upstream of the linear cascade. Prediction of the flow through cascades of blades is fundamental to all aspects of turbomachinery aerodynamic design and analysis.

The quasi-two-dimensional flow through compressor or turbine blading can be simulated by the flow through a plane CASCADE, i.e., by a row of blades having identical shapes and constant spacing along the blade height.
