FLOvane: A new approach for high-pressure vane design

Abstract:

This paper presents a new unconventional philosophy for high-pressure (HP) vane design. It is proposed that the most natural design starting point for admitting and accelerating flow with minimum loss and secondary flow is a trumpet-shaped flow-path which gradually turns to the desired angle. Multiple trumpet-shaped inlets are seamlessly blended into the (annular or partitioned) combustor walls resulting in a highly lofted flow-path, rather than a traditional flow-path defined by distinct air...
