  1. 1. On an Efficient Method fo Time-Domain Computational Aeroelasticity

    Author : David Eller; Ulf Ringertz; Paolo Mantegazza; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aeroelasticity; unsteady aerodynamics; boundary element method; multidisciplinary simulation; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The present thesis summarizes work on developing a method for unsteady aerodynamic analysis primarily for aeroelastic simulations. In contrast to widely used prediction tools based on frequency-domain representations, the current approach aims to provide a time-domain simulation capability which can be readily integrated with possibly nonlinear structural and control system models.

  3. 3. Numerical Investigation of the Aerodynamic Vibration Excitation of High-Pressure Turbine Rotors

    Author : Markus Jöcker; KTH; []
    Keywords : Aeroelasticity; Aerodynamics; Stator-Rotor Interaction; Excitation Mechanism; Unsteady Flow Computation; Forced Response; High Cycle Fatigue; Turbomachinery; Gas-Turbine; High-Pressure Turbine; Turbopump; CFD; Design;

    Abstract : The design parameters axial gap and stator count of highpressure turbine stages are evaluated numerically towards theirinfluence on the unsteady aerodynamic excitation of rotorblades. Of particular interest is if and how unsteadyaerodynamic considerations in the design could reduce the riskofhigh cycle fatigue (HCF) failures of the turbine rotor. READ MORE
