  1. 1. Engine Optimized Turbine Design

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nicholas Anton; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbocharger; Heavy-duty; Turbine; Axial; Radial; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : The focus on our environment has never been as great as it is today. The impact of global warming and emissions from combustion processes become increasingly more evident with growing concerns among the world’s inhabitants. The consequences of extreme weather events, rising sea levels, urban air quality, etc. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jens Fridh; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; axial turbine; partial admission; part loads; experimental investigation; turbine performance; losses; dynamic rotor forces; forced response; unsteady flow; axialturbin; partialpådrag; dellaster; reglersteg; experimentell undersökning; turbinprestanda; förluster; dynamiska krafter; rotorvibration; instationär strömning;

    Abstract : The thesis comprises a collection of four papers with preceding summary and supplementary appendices. The core investigation solely is of experimental nature although reference and comparisons with numerical models will be addressed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Flow Control and Shape Optimization of Intermediate Turbine Ducts for Turbofan Engines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Fredrik Wallin; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFD; response surface methodology; intermediate turbine duct; vortex generators; turbine intermediate case; endwall contouring; turbine center frame; body-force model; shape optimization; mid-turbine frame; flow control;

    Abstract : Demands on improved efficiency, reduced emissions and lowered noise levels cause a strive towards high by-pass ratios of commercial turbofan engines. This results in an increased radial offset between the high- and low-pressure turbines. Thus the design of the intermediate turbine duct connecting the two turbines becomes more challenging.

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Energiteknik

    Author : Markus Jöcker; KTH.; [2002]
    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

  5. 5. Experimental and numerical investigation of axial turbine models

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Berhanu Mulu; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Hydropower is a versatile renewable source of power generation able to change rapidly operating conditions. Hydropower plants may today work over a larger operating range than designed for due to the introduction of renewable sources of energy and the deregulation of the electricity market. READ MORE
