Research project: Flow in low-pressure turbines

Currently Active: 
Yes

Traditionally, the design of turbomachinery components has been exclusively accomplished with steady CFD, with Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) models being the predominant choice. With computing power continuously increasing, high-fidelity numerical simulations of turbomachinery components are now becoming a valuable research tool for validating the design process and continued development of design tools.

Project Overview

In the current project, Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and other eddy-resolving approaches are performed of turbomachinery components to establish benchmark data for design tools, and to investigate physical mechanisms that cannot be captured by traditional CFD approaches. Figure 1
