Jun '17 Rapid Design of Cooling Flow Paths for Turbomachinery

We present the rapid analysis and design of gas turbine cooling flow paths in turbine machinery. 

Internal cooling system pressure, flow rate, power and heat transfer distribution for ensuring effective film cooling on hot surfaces. 

- Swirl calculation through integrated swirl solver. 
- Labyrinth seal pressure drop calculation. 
- Rotor-Rotor pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Rotor-Stator pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Free Vortex pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Forced Vortex pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Rotating nozzle pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Rotating channel pressure differential and power transfer calculation. 
- Convection heat transfer between solids and cooling air.
