  • 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 ...
  • Wilson, Alexander George (Cranfield University, 1996-09)
    The objective of the work described in this thesis is twofold; to elucidate the nature of stall and surge in an axial flow aeroengine compressor, and to improve on current computational stall modelling techniques. ...
  • Yu, H. (Cranfield University, 1991-11)
    This thesis presents the experimental investigation of stall in low hub tip ratio industrial fans. Detailed measurements were obtained i four fan configurations. The effects of blade setting angle, solidity, blade ...
  • Tan, S. C. (Cranfield University, 1988-01)
    An experimental and theoretical study of the particle trajectories in a gas turbine intake has been presented. computer model was written to simulate a particle behaviour flight in a theoretical flow which was ...
  • Dennis, C. W. (Cranfield University, 1996-10)
    The exhaust -plumes generated by rocket motors are of significant military importance for missile detection, recognition and communication due to their electromagnetic emission and propagation properties. The plume is a ...
  • Eames, I. W. (Cranfield UniversityCranfield Institute of Technology. School of Mechanical Engineering, 1989-10)
    The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the findings of research undertaken into the design manufacture and testing of a novel refrigeration compressor for use in packaged air conditioner units of the type used in railway ...
  • Li, Yiguang (Cranfield University, 2000-03)
    \Yith the current develop111ent in computer technology and Computational Fluid D)"n<'tlllics techniques, t.he si11utlation within axial flow compressors becomes 1110re and 1110re pract.ical and beneficial to the compressor ...
  • Read, Simon (Cranfield University, 1997-08)
    This thesis aims to contribute to the understanding of transitional flows in the blade boundary layers of axial compressors. Two experiments are described, the first examining in detail the transitional boundary layer ...
  • Kalfas, A. (Cranfield University, 1994-04)
    This thesis is concerned with the investigation of boundary layer transition phenomena in relation to turbomachinery flows. The present study involved the experimental investigation of the flow field around flat plates ...
  • Ghenaiet, Adel (Cranfield University, 2001-09)
    Erosion of gas turbines operating in sandy or dusty environments can result in serious damage to the engine components, particularly the compressor unit. This phenomenon is a result of the ingestion of the sand particles ...
