Advances in turbomachinery aero-thermo-mechanical design
Edited by G. Paniagua, R.B. Rivir
November 27-30, 2006 - Hosted by the Wright patterson Air Force base at the Wright State University, USA

The present multidisciplinary Lecture Series notes address the current state of the art in the design and analysis of axial Turbomachinery components. The proceedings are aimed at Turbomachinery designers, as well as experimental and CFD aero-thermal scientists. Both aerodynamic, heat transfer and mechanical concepts are developed by authors coming from industry, governmental and research agencies and universities.

An introductory part discusses the current trends in engine research. The next course note explains the successive steps of the aero-design of high-pressure turbines. Future improvements in the performance of turbine based propulsion largely depend on our understanding of unsteady flows. In view of decreasing weight and costs, current turbomachinery designs tend to increase the stage loading and to shorten the distance between blade rows. Several consecutive courses are dedicated to unsteady effects in HP turbines, LP turbines and compressors. Notes on forced response address the impact of the excitation on blade and disk vibrations. Current practice of aeromechanical design are presented and illustrated with practical examples in compressors and turbines.

Cooling techniques are crucial to guarantee the life of the HP blades. A special note addresses general design issues and types of calculations used in cooling channels. Turbine tip clearance improvement, in spite of known challenges, continues to present one of the most powerful means for enhancement of gas turbine engine performance. The experimental and numerical study of various tip configurations address as well. Emphasis is then put on tip heat transfer and cooling, looking among other subjects to design aspects and methodologies.

Finally specific notes are given on advanced numerical methods using Large Eddy Simulations. Afterwards, applications to control the flow in turbines are presented. The current proceedings are an update of previously delivered courses at the von Karman Institute.
