  2. 2. Experimental Investigation of Added Mass and Damping on a Model Kaplan Turbine for Rotor Dynamic Analysis

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Timmy Nyman; [2018]
    Keywords : Added mass; added damping; rotor dynamics; kaplan turbine; vibrations; fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : The concept of added hydrodynamic properties such as added mass is of importance in modern hydropower development, mainly for rotor dynamic calculations. Added mass could result in reduced natural frequencies and altered mode compared to existing simulation models. READ MORE
