Numerical Investigation of Various Heat Transfer Performance Enhancement Configurations for Energy Harvesting Applications
(Virginia Tech, 2016-08-09)
Conventional understanding of quality of energy suggests that heat is a low grade form of energy. Hence converting this energy into useful form of work was assumed difficult. However, this understanding was challenged by ...
Performance of a Showerhead and Shaped Hole Film Cooled Vane at High Freestream Turbulence and Transonic Conditions
(Virginia Tech, 2010-05-05)
An experimental study was performed to measure surface Nusselt number and film cooling effectiveness on a film cooled first stage nozzle guide vane using a transient thin film gauge (TFG) technique. The information presented ...
Heat Transfer Performance Improvement Technologies for Hot Gas Path Components in Gas Turbines
(Virginia Tech, 2016-06-14)
In the past few decades, the operating temperatures of gas turbine engines have increased significantly with a view towards increasing the overall thermal efficiency and specific power output. As a result of increased ...
