Air-film behaviour in an air-riding face seal

Abstract:

Increased cycle efficiency and reduced ownership costs of gas turbine engines can be facilitated by improvements in sealing between stationary and rotating engine components. Contacting seals have already improved performance but advanced non-contacting seals offer the possibility of high performance with near-infinite service life. This thesis investigates one potential style of non-contacting face seal which uses a thin film of air to maintain clearance between engine components at all e...
