    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 ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    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. The Influence of Flow Leakage Modelling on Turbomachinery Blade Forcing Predictions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Tobias Gezork; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Vibrations in turbomachinery engine components are undesirable as they put the structural integrity of the components at risk and can lead to failure during the lifetime of the turbomachinery engine. Vibrations arising from aerodynamic forces and stability of turbomachinery blades is assessed in the discipline of aeromechanics. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [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
