Computational Fluid Dynamic and Rotordynamic Study on the Labyrinth Seal
(Virginia Tech, 2012-06-14)
The labyrinth seal is widely used in turbo machines to reduce leakage flow. The stability of the rotor is influenced by the labyrinth seal because of the driving forces generated in the seal. The working fluid usually has ...
Fan-Shaped Hole Film Cooling on Turbine Blade and Vane in a Transonic Cascade with High Freestream Turbulence: Experimental and CFD Studies
(Virginia Tech, 2012-06-28)
The contribution of present research work is to experimentally investigate the effects of blowing ratio and mainstream Mach number/Reynolds number (from 0.6/8.5X10⁵ to 1.0/1.4X10⁶) on the performance of the fan-shaped hole ...
Design, Analysis, and Testing of Nanoparticle-Infused Thin Film Sensors for Low Skin Friction Applications
(Virginia Tech, 2012-12-07)
Accurate measurement of skin friction in complex flows is important for: documentation and monitoring of fluid system performance, input information for flow control, development of turbulence models and CFD validation. ...
