An experimental method for the investigation of subsonic stall flutter in gas turbine engine fans and compressors
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1978)
A facility for the investigation of stall flutter in aircraft engine compressors and fans was designed. Stall flutter was achieved in the test fan and verified through sonic and photographic methods. The frequency components ...
An experimental examination of the effect of trailing edge thickness on the aerodynamic performance of gas turbine blades
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1989)
This thesis documents the experimental research conducted on a transonic turbine cascade. The cascade was a two-dimensional model of a jet-engine turbine with an, approximately, 1.2 design, exit Mach number, and was tested ...
