A new understanding of supersonic flow transitions
To hold global warming in check requires an interplay of new energy sources and the improvement of process efficiencies of existing machines. Ultra-compact transonic and supersonic turbomachinery stages are used by several technologies today. However, shock systems in the supersonic flow significantly restrict machine efficiency, threatening the responsible use of energy. The EU-funded ROTRANS project will improve our understanding of the shock formation and high-frequency response within the rotor. The project will use a numerical analysis of observed phenomenon to develop a reduced model based on 3D features that will be validated by advanced experimental assessments. Design optimisation of a turbine and a compressor geometry will estimate the final applicability of both the reduced model and the functionality of the innovative concept.
