    Development of high load turbine profiles with reduced secondary losses”

    Principal subject

     

    The possibility of acting on the pressure difference between pressure and suction side has been investigated, in a way to avoid the problems inherent to a non-axisymmetric endwall profiling.

    Thus, two types of geometric features have applied to the basic profile: the leading edge fillet and the bumped leading edge.

    The leading edge fillet is a patch which extends all over pressure and suction side of the original profile, linking up airfoil surfaces and endwalls. The bumped leading edge is a tapering similar to the above mentioned, but present only near the leading edge of the profile.

    A suitable parametric description of the new features has been developed, along with a tool able to generate such configurations in a quick and efficient way.

    An optimal configuration in terms of performance and robustness has been settled, through the specific optimization tools, involving artificial neural networks and/or genetic algorithms.

    Experimental analysis on turbine profile cascades for aeronautical applications”

    Principal subject

     

    Aerodynamic performance of high-lift profile of low pressure turbine have been investigated, with steady and unsteady inlet conditions and at different Reynolds numbers.

    Measures have been conducted on six different cascades, during steady and unsteady running. They regarded load distribution on profile surface at distinct Re numbers; total pressure tangential distribution downstream the row, in order to evaluate the losses with the Re number; outlet angle tangential distribution.

    Then, the boundary layer has been resolved in detail, with the object of understanding the transition driven by the passing wake, the interaction between wake and boundary layer, and secondary flows.

    All the tests took place on the test rigs of University of Genoa.

    Principal subject

     

    The current trends in turbine design is to move most of the required analyses down to the preliminary phases of the process, in order to curb development costs and increase degrees of freedom during the planning stage.

    Therefore, new tools have been worked out for allowing a multidisciplinary approach from the very begin.

    Two main implements have been built up: a one-dimensional aerodynamic solver, assisted by a generator of three-dimensional blades, consistent with the flow solution.

    The solver can resolve flow both in standard configuration turbines and in counter rotating architectures; the gas is considered ideal, but computations with real gases are possible as well.

    Different model of losses are available, and at the end of the computation, the software provides a preliminary cross section of the turbine module.

    Since the code contains tools for preliminary multi-disciplinary analyses, it is possible to have an assessment of the weight of the turbine module, an evaluation of its acoustic characteristics, a mechanical analysis of stators and rotors, and an optimization of the disk shape. A plot technology tool carries out structural controls to choose the most suitable material for the profiles. Containment is also taken into account, fixing an adequate casing thickness to keep fragments of the rotor parts within the engine in case of burst.

    As far as the blade generator is concerned, it describes the whole blade with a discrete number of spanwise sections, taking the results of the fluid dynamics analysis as input.

    Each section is univocally specified by means of a certain number of parameters, which identify four parametric curves. Being parametric, the shape of the profile can be modified with considerable precision, and it can be easily exported to a CAD environment for further mechanical analyses and modelling.

    Such codes have been employed within the development of commercial programs, which have proved the effectiveness of the tools. They have been adopted to design the turbine modules expected in the VITAL European research program, and are at present used in a second European research program (FACTOR), aimed at optimising the combustor-turbine interactions

    A revision of the design process carried out during the past year allows to deal with high speed turbines, encountered in the Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative, a partnership between European commission and industry. In order to handle such non-conventional architectures, new optimization cycles have been realized, involving a two-dimensional spanwise work distribution optimizer and a quasi-three-dimensional one.
