Gas turbines : internal flow systems modeling

By: Sultanian, Bijay K.
Series: Cambridge aerospace series. / edited by Wei Shyy.Publisher: New Delhi Cambridge University Press 2018Description: xviii, 356p.ISBN: 9781107170094.Subject(s): Gas-turbines -- Fluid dynamics -- Mathematics | Gas flow -- Mathematical modelsDDC classification: 621.43 | Su59g Summary: This long-awaited, physics-first and design-oriented text describes and explains the underlying flow and heat transfer theory of secondary air systems. An applications-oriented focus throughout the book provides the reader with robust solution techniques, state-of-the-art three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methodologies, and examples of compressible flow network modeling. It clearly explains elusive concepts of windage, non-isentropic generalized vortex, Ekman boundary layer, rotor disk pumping, and centrifugally-driven buoyant convection associated with gas turbine secondary flow systems featuring rotation. The book employs physics-based, design-oriented methodology to compute windage and swirl distributions in a complex rotor cavity formed by surfaces with arbitrary rotation, counter-rotation, and no rotation. This text will be a valuable tool for aircraft engine and industrial gas turbine design engineers as well as graduate students enrolled in advanced special topics courses.
