Compressible starting jet: pinch-off and vortex ring–trailing jet interaction

Peña Fernández, Juan José ; Sesterhenn, Jörn (2017)

The dominant feature of the compressible starting jet is the interaction between the emerging vortex ring and the trailing jet. There are two types of interaction: the shock–shear layer–vortex interaction and the shear layer–vortex interaction. The former is clearly not present in the incompressible case, since there are no shocks. The shear layer–vortex interaction has been reported in the lit...

Statistics of fully turbulent impinging jets

Wilke, Robert ; Sesterhenn, Jörn (2017)

Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of subsonic and supersonic impinging jets with Reynolds numbers of 3300 and 8000 are carried out to analyse their statistical properties with respect to heat transfer. The Reynolds number range is at low or moderate values in terms of practical applications, but very high regarding the technical possibilities of DNS. A Reynolds number of 8000 is technically re...

Die akustischen Randbedingungen perforierter Wandauskleidungen in Strömungskanälen

Schulz, Anita (2019)

Perforierte, schallabsorbierende Wandauskleidungen werden vielfach in Strömungskanälen, z. B. Flugzeugtriebwerken, zur passiven Lärmminderung eingesetzt. Die komplizierte Wechselwirkung zwischen Schall und Strömung an der strukturierten schalldurchlässigen Wand findet in einer relativ dünnen Grenzschicht statt, so dass der Einfluss auf die Schallausbreitung in guter Näherung durch akustische Ra...

No external trigger is employed to control the oscillation of the flow. Mathematical and signal conditioning approaches for phase averaging the data are categorized and described. The results of these methods are evaluated for their accuracy in capturing the na...

Contact electrification in aerosolized micron-sized solid particles: dependence upon size, chemical composition and gas properties

Alois, Stefano (2018)

Contact electrification is ubiquitously present in our everyday life and acquires significant importance for micron scale particles, where it may be of considerable use in order to prevent/promote charging in a variety of practical applications. Despite being widely studied, a complete understanding of the charge transfer mechanisms is still lacking. In this work, contact electrification of ae...

Active control of the aerodynamic performance and tonal noise of axial turbomachines

Neuhaus, L. ; Schulz, J. ; Neise, W. ; Möser, M. (2003)

Two projects on axial fans are presented in this paper. The first aims at improving the aerodynamic performance and reducing the tip clearance noise caused by the rotating instability. This is achieved by injecting air into the radial gap between the impeller blade tips and the fan casing. Steady air injection with small mass flows results in remarkable reductions in the noise level along with ...

Experimental and numerical results of active flow control on a highly loaded stator cascade

This article presents experimental and numerical results for a compressor cascade with active flow control. Steady and pulsed blowing has been used to control the secondary flow and separation characteristics of a highly loaded controlled diffusion airfoil. Investigations were performed at the design incidence for blowing ratios from approximately 0.7 to 3.0 (jet-to-inlet velocity) and a Reynol...

Time domain modelling and stability analysis of complex thermoacoustic systems

Bothien, Mirko R. ; Moeck, Jonas P. ; Lacarelle, Arnaud ; Paschereit, Christian Oliver (2007)

A methodology allowing for a modular setup of complex acoustic systems is developed. The transfer behaviour of the individual subsystems is formulated in time domain. Subsystem descriptions can be obtained by analytical considerations, numerical methods, or experimental data. Once the complex subsystems have been characterized experimentally, changes in system geometry can be implemented easily...

Measurement and modeling of the generation and the transport of entropy waves in a model gas turbine combustor

Wassmer, Dominik ; Schuermans, Bruno ; Paschereit, Christian Oliver ; Moeck, Jonas P. (2017)

Indirect combustion noise is caused by entropy spots that are accelerated at the first turbine stage. These so-called entropy waves originate from the equivalence ratio fluctuations in the air–fuel mixture upstream of the flame. As entropy waves propagate convectively through the combustion chamber, they are subject to diffusion and dispersion. Because of the inherent difficulty of accurately m...

An acoustic time-of-flight technique for unsteady temperature measurements in combustion chambers

Waßmer, Dominik (2018)

In consideration of the manifold alternative electric energy sources, load flexibility in modern gas turbines is an essential requirement. To this end, the operational range of the engines must be extended. However, this is often impeded by low-frequency combustion instabilities that are associated with acoustics generated within the gas turbine combustor. These high-amplitude pressure oscillat...

On the Potential of Power Generation from Thermoelectric Generators in Gas Turbine Combustors

Stathopoulos, Panagiotis ; Fernàndez-Villa, Javier (2018-10-16)

Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) offer an attractive power generation option. They have no moving parts, are robust and emit no pollutants. The current work explores the integration of high temperature TEGs in gas turbine combustors. The latter have a thermal shield at their inner surface to protect them against high temperatures. This is supplemented by convective and film cooling. This work s...

Modification of a high pressure test rig for thermoacoustic measurements

Niether, Sebastian (2018)

Current stationary gas turbines for power generation rely on lean premixed combustion, in order to achieve low emissions of detrimental exhaust gases, such as NOx. However, employment of this combustion process can lead to the occurrence of thermoacoustic instabilities. Characterized by strong pressure fluctuations inside the combustion chamber, this phenomenon has negative effects on exhaust g...

The influence of impeller designs on the performance of a vortex pump

Gerlach, Angela (2018)

Vortex pumps are particularly suitable for the transportation of solids-containing fluids. Hence, vortex pumps are applied to a wide range of operation domains, from wastewater transport to food processing. Characteristics of vortex pumps are their recessed, semi-open impeller and their enlarged gap between the impeller and the casing. These features strongly reduce the risk of clogging compare...

A Finite-Time Thermodynamics of Unsteady Fluid Flows

Noack, Bernd R. ; Schlegel, Michael ; Ahlborn, Boye ; Mutschke, Gerd ; Morzyński, Marek ; Comte, Pierre ; Tadmor, Gilead (2008)

Turbulent fluid has often been conceptualized as a transient thermodynamic phase. Here, a finite-time thermodynamics (FTT) formalism is proposed to compute mean flow and fluctuation levels of unsteady incompressible flows. The proposed formalism builds upon the Galerkin model framework, which simplifies a continuum 3D fluid motion into a finite-dimensional phase-space dynamics and, subsequently...
