Turbine blade mid-chord internal cooling

Abstract:

Modern gas turbine engines operate at temperatures well above the melting point of the metal components. This has driven manufactures to develop sophisticated cooling methods which minimise the use of coolant to maximise engine efficiency by enabling further increases in operating temperature. This thesis investigates the cooling performance of engine representative mid-chord internal cooling passages for turbine blades. The work forms part of a larger E.C. FP7 project ERICKA (Engine Repre...
