  • Wahba, Waleed (Cranfield University, 2001-09)
    Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques have settled to a stage, where it is possible to gain significant insight into fluid flow processes of turbomachinery. However, the purpose of fluid dynamics naturally goes ...
  • Alimin, E. K. (Cranfield University, 1995-07)
    This thesis concentrates on accuracy improvements for an existing software package that solves the three dimensional Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations in rotating coordinates. It is a cell centred explicit ...
  • Razak, A. M. Y. (Cranfield University, 1984-10)
    The recent developments in process plant design have made it desirable that a better understanding of transient compressor performance within the process plant be gained. The model outlined in this thesis is capable of ...
  • Harris, P. K. (Cranfield University, 1996-01)
    An experimental and theoretical study of erosion in centrifugal compressor impellers is presented. An experimental rig using laser anemometry techniques was employed to create a database of particle restitution ratios ...
  • Dickson, Philip James (Cranfield University, 1998)
    Cyclone separators have been described in detail and, although substantial research has been performed on solid / gas devices, the use of cyclones for gas / liquid separation has been comparatively ignored; this is ...
  • Salama, I. M. (Cranfield University, 2002-05)
    An experimental study of the particle-to-metal interaction during high temperatures and velocity impact conditions is presented. A novel continuous erosion testing facility have been used to study the effect of particle ...

    In the current research work, a computational analysis of a high-speed centrifugal compressor stage for turbocharger applications is presented. A detailed investigation about the interactions between backswept impeller ...
  • Lyes, Peter A. (Cranfield University, 1999-01-28)
    This Thesis reports the design, build and test of two sets of blading for the Cranfield University low speed research compressor. The first of these was a datum low speed design based on the fourth stage of the DERA high ...
  • Cheng, C. P. (Cranfield University, 1992-01)
    For the efficient design of transonic turbomachinery systems, understanding of the complex flow phenomena inherent in the flow passages is essential. In the present study, a computational technique is adopted to meet ...
  • Sun, J (Cranfield University, 1998-08)
    A numerical approach for modelling variable stator stagger in multistage stage axial flow compressors is presented. The development of such an approach has been motivated by the requirements of an optimisation methodology ...
  • Ghila, Abdurazag M. (Cranfield University, 2003-02)
    T he casing treatment technique for the axial fan has never been more significant since its potential applications were recognized in gas turbines, tunnel ventilation and many other industrial applications where the axial ...
  • Tourlidakis, A. (Cranfield University, 1992-03)
    A fully elliptic computational method for the analysis of steady viscous flow in high speed subsonic centrifugal compressor impellers with tip leakage, is presented. A generalised curvilinear, non-orthogonal grid is ...
  • White, N. M. (Cranfield University, 2002-04)
    There is a common requirement in the process, oil and gas turbine industries for high performance axial flow compressors operating over a wide range of mass flow rate and rotational speed at high efficiency. The trends ...
  • Soundranayagam, M. (Cranfield University, 1991-06)
    An investigation was carried out to study the process of rotating stall inception in a low hub-tip ratio fan. Such fans are expected, based on an elementary analysis, to stall from the root. However, experimental ...
  • Tzannatos, E. (Cranfield University, 1986-11)
    The performance requirements of turbofan engines demands a stability and transient capability beyond that associated with the past generations of gas turbine engines. The axial flow fan unit is most vulnerable to loading ...
