Implementation of Wide Diffusion Angle V-Shaped Holes for Gas Turbine Cooling: Design Phase and Numerical Simulation

V. OdemondoL. Abba

Abstract

This paper describes the design process carried out to develop a new hole geometry. This geometry is able to increase the cooling coverage effect on a turbine blade, in order to have a higher efficiency compared to the standard holes. The first step of the activity described is a CFD analysis of the performances of different hole geometries on a flat plate. Starting from the cylindrical holes the performances of several geometries have been compared. This study allowed the determination of the geometrical parameters mostly responsible of the film effectiveness increase. In this way a criterion able to optimize the hole geometry has been found. Keeping as constraint the same inlet section for all the geometries, the shape of the outlet section was modified in order to maximize the film coverage performances. An optimized hole geometry had been determined. This solution, called V-Shaped hole is characterized by a wide lateral expansion angle and a negligible laidback angle and it is able to increase the cooling effectiveness compared to cylindrical and shaped holes with typical expansion angles (lateral and laidback about 10°). Finally, a comparison with an experimental campaign has been performed to confirm the main results of t...Continue Reading

COVID-19

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.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

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.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds.
