Very Large Eddy Simulation of Film Cooling Effectiveness on Trailing Edge Cutback

Xin Yan

Abstract

The trailing edge of high pressure gas turbine blade in aeroengine is usually designed as thin as possible to achieve higher aerodynamic efficiency. However, as the inlet temperature of modern gas turbine is continuously increasing, thermal stress in a thin trailing edge will become much significant, resulting in possibilities of erosion and creep problems. To find a balance between these two conflicting goals, one method is the use of pressure-side cutback, which extends into the coolant slot to get film cooling and also achieves a thin trailing edge. Due to the interactions between mainstream and coolant flow, film cooling effect on trailing edge cutback is significantly affected by the vortex shedding downstream the cooling slot. To resolve the coherent flow structures and understand their role on film cooling effect on trailing-edge cutback, this paper implemented a Very Large Eddy Simulation (VLES) model into the solver ANSYS Fluent with user defined functions. By introducing a resolution control factor, the turbulence viscosity predicted by transient SST k-ω model was corrected and the VLES computations were realized in the whole computational region. With the VLES method, film cooling effectiveness distributions on trail...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.

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.
