Unsteady transitional flows in axial turbomachines (UTAT)

Objective

The proposal contributes to the objectives of FP5, i.e. increasing thrust to weight ratio by 40% and improving SFC and thus reducing CO2 emissions by 20% using design methods which make use of transition effects in unsteady flow. Efficient transition models based on the physical understanding of transition induced by wakes, potential disturbances and surface roughness will be developed and validated by experimental testing. These models are applied to the numerical analysis of new designs of highly loaded axial gas turbine blades. Experimental, and numerical results are collected in a unique database, which will enhance the physical understanding of transition considerably and facilitate future validation of transition models.
