Accuracy Assessment of the Sellers Model in Predicting the Multi-Row Film Cooling Performance

Xinrong SuYifei Li


Multi-row film cooling is widely applied in modern gas turbine cooling designs. However, there are few effective methods to predict local cooling effectiveness and the Sellers model based on the existing 1-D correlation is popular in the community but its prediction accuracy is questionable in some cases. The primary work of the current study is to analyze the prediction error of the Sellers model and to reveal the underlying flow mechanism. Considering the lateral uniformity assumption of the 1-D Sellers model, the effect of pitchwise row-to-row misalignment can hardly be included and the 2-D Sellers model is, therefore, proposed. Numerical simulations under density ratio near 1.0 are conducted on the double-row film cooling. Configurations of inline and staggered arrangements and blowing ratios from 0.5 to 2.0 are included. Cooling effectiveness can be theoretically decomposed into two parts contributed by separate rows, and this method has been validated. The footprint of coolant can, therefore, be tracked. Based on vortical interaction analysis, conclusions are obtained that pitchwise row-to-row spacing determines the overestimation or underestimation of the model-predicted result and the blowing ratio affects the absolute ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
