Case Study

Understanding the aeromechanical behavior or embedded compressor rotors computationally

An important topic in the gas turbine industry is blade aeromechanics, which can lead to engine failure. GUIde Consortium launched a project to better understand the underlying physics of multi-row interactions in gas turbine compressors. The Aeroelasticity Research Group at Duke University investigated this phenomenon computationally, in conjunction with physical testing at the Zucrow labs at Purdue University. The research involved high-fidelity 3D time domain computational simulations using Ansys CFX and a few in-house codes.
