Time Varying Wake Characteristics Behind Flat Plates And Turbine Cascades

Objective

The research programme has the following principal objectives.

Better understanding of, and ability to control wake/blade interaction effects in highly loaded HP turbines.
Resolution of the effects on turbine performance of coolant injection in Nozzle Guide Vanes (NGV) and blades.
Measurement of heat transfer to rotating turbine blades. Unsteady interaction and coolant injection from NGV and blade.
Investigation of large scale film cooling holes. Determination of the discharge coefficient, flow structure and heat transfer.
CFD development work to shed further light on the above and facilitate superior design methods.
