Computational Investigations of Boundary Condition Effects on Simulations of Thermoacoustic Instabilities
(Virginia Tech, 2016-02-17)
This dissertation presents a formulation of the Continuous Sensitivity Equation Method (CSEM) applied to the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of thermoacoustic instability problems. The proposed sensitivity ...
Effects of Two-Phase Flow in a Multistage Centrifugal Compressor
(Virginia Tech, 2016-10-19)
The performance of a vapor compression system is known to be affected by the ingestion of liquid droplets in the compressor. In these multiphase flows, the liquid and the vapor phase are tightly coupled. Therefore the ...
Analysis of film cooling performance of tripod hole
(Virginia Tech, 2016-09-09)
The thermal efficiency of a gas turbine directly depends on the rotor inlet temperature. The ever increasing demand for more power and advances in the field of engineering enabled this temperature to be pushed higher. But ...
