Turbine Blade Heat Transfer Measurements in a Transonic Flow Using Thin Film Gages
(Virginia Tech, 2006-06-16)
<p>Experimental heat transfer data has been collected at engine representative conditions in this work to use in future work to improve computational models. Tests were carried out in a transonic cascade wind tunnel with ...
Large Eddy Simulation of Flow and Heat Transfer in a Staggered 45° Ribbed Duct and a Rotating 90° Ribbed Duct
(Virginia Tech, 2003-11-24)
For the past several years there has been great effort in the analysis of internal duct cooling. The steady increase in power output and thermal efficiency requirements for gas turbine engines has called for significant ...
Steady and Transient Analysis of Flow and Heat Transfer in SPND Assembly
(Virginia Tech, 2008-12-03)
This thesis presents the analysis of flow and heat transfer for the SPND (Self-Powered Neutron Detector) system used within the nuclear reactor core in the U.S. Evolutionary Power Reactor developed by AREVA. The SPND ...
Effect of Blowing Ratio on the Nusselt Number and Film Cooling Effectiveness Distributions of a Showerhead Film Cooled Blade in a Transonic Cascade
(Virginia Tech, 2007-07-16)
This paper investigates the effect of blowing ratio on the film cooling performance of a showerhead film cooled first stage turbine blade. The blade was instrumented with double-sided thin film heat flux gages to ...
Heat Transfer Measurements Using Thin Film Gauges and Infrared Thermography on a Film Cooled Transonic Vane
(Virginia Tech, 2009-05-04)
This work presents a comparison of thin film gauge (TFG) and infrared (IR) thermography measurement techniques to simultaneously determine heat transfer coefficient and film cooling effectiveness. The first comparison was ...
