  1. 1. Analysis of Barreling and Tolerance Effects of Blade Attachments

    University essay from KTH/Hållfasthetslära (Avd.)

    Author : Yuanyuan Xu; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In a gas turbine rotor, the Blade-Disc attachment is often a critical part. This part needs to endure both high contact stress and high temperature. Thus, the prediction of the life of the attachment becomes important.  Furthermore, the refinement of the Blade-Disc attachment is worth to study, to extend the lifetime of the turbine rotor.

  2. 2. Partially Parabolic Wind Turbine Flow Modelling

    University essay from KTH/Mekanik

    Author : Sebastian Haglund El Gaidi; [2018]
    Keywords : Wind turbine flow; Single wind turbine; Computational fluid dynamics; Partially parabolic Navier-Stokes equations; Finite difference method.;

    Abstract : Climate change is an evermore urging existential treat to the human enterprise. Mean temperature and greenhouse gas emissions have in-creased exponentially since the industrial revolution. But solutions are also mushrooming with exponential pace. READ MORE

  3. 3. CFD calculations and comparison with measured data in a film cooled 1.5 stage high pressure test turbine : With two configurations of swirlers clocking

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Ellen Hallbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Turbine; CFD; Clocking configuration; Turbin; CFD; virvlareposition;

    Abstract : The gas turbine has an important role for the energy distribution due to its stability and flexibility. By increasing turbine inlet temperature (TIT) an increased thermal efficiency of the turbine can be achieved. The biggest limitation of the TIT is the material of the turbine components. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigation and Validation of Cooling Loss Models for Axial Gas Turbines

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik; KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Jacob Händestam; Eric Jacobson; [2017]
    Keywords : axial gas turbines; one-dimensional; aerodynamics; cooling; losses; loss models; validation; axiella gas turbiner; endimensionell; aerodynamik; kylning; förluster; förlust modellering; validering;

    Abstract : Detta arbete behandlar undersökningen och valideringen av kylförlustmodellen i det nyligen framtagna programmet för endimensionell turbindesign, Mean Line Tool (MLT), skapat av Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB (SIT). Huvudsyftet är att undersöka med vilken noggrannhet MLT kan prediktera de extra aerodynamiska förluster som uppstår vid injektion av kylluft i en turbinpassage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Highly loaded HPT blading in KTH test turbine - An attempt to reduce the number of blades in the first stage in a high pressure turbine

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

    Author : Magnus Persson; [2015]
    Keywords : Highly loaded blading; High pressure turbine; Industrial gas turbine; Zweifel coefficient; Cooling; Reduce the number of blades; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The main goal with this thesis was to investigate the possibility to reduce the number of blades in a high pressure gas turbine row. The reason for this study was the interest to reduce the amount of cooling air needed within the blade row by reducing the wetted area, hopefully without losing efficiency. READ MORE
