    Abstract : Aero engine performance analysis is highly multidimensional using various measures of component performance such as turbomachinery and mechanical efficiencies, and pressure loss coefficients. Using conventional performance analysis, relying on only the laws of thermodynamics, it is possible to understand how the performance parameters affect the component performance, but it is difficult to directly compare the magnitude of various loss sources.

  2. 2. Investigation on the Influence of Nodularity in Machining of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI)

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Gustav Grenmyr; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Compacted Graphite Iron CGI ; cutting forces; wear mechanisms; tool wear; nodularity; tool temperature; cutting temperature;

    Abstract : Stringency of environmental legislation on emission rates and increasing vehicle performance requirements are pushing the automotive and heavy truck industries to find new solutions for their diesel engines. Two potential opportunities to address these challenges involve increased combustion pressure to obtain more efficient combustion or reducing the weight of the engine. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oxidation behaviour of MCrAlX coatings effect of surface treatment and an Al-activity based life criterion

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Pimin Zhang; Ru Lin Peng; Xin-Hai Li; Sten Johansson; Fang Liu; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : MCrAlY coatings (M=Ni and/or Co) have been widely used for the protection of superalloy components against oxidation and hot corrosion in the hot sections of gas turbines. The drive to improve engine combustion efficiency while reducing emissions by increasing the operation temperature brings a big challenge for coating design. READ MORE
