Unshrouded turbine blade tip heat transfer and film cooling

Abstract:

This thesis presents a joint computational and experimental investigation into the heat transfer to unshrouded turbine blade tips suitable for use in high bypass ratio, large civil aviation turbofan engines. Both the heat transfer to the blade tip and the over-tip leakage flow over the blade tip are characterised, as each has a profound influence on overall engine efficiency.

The study is divided into two sections; in the first, computational simulations of a very large scale, low s...
