Preliminary Study On The Impact Of Impingement On The Effectiveness Of Film Cooling In The Presence Of Gas Path Pressure Gradient, Anil Peravali Jan 2006

Preliminary Study On The Impact Of Impingement On The Effectiveness Of Film Cooling In The Presence Of Gas Path Pressure Gradient, Anil Peravali

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Impingement is the most commonly used method of cooling in the hot stages of gas turbines. This is often combined with film cooling to further increase the cooling performance. The mainstream flow where in the coolant films discharge often has large stream wise pressure variations. All existing studies on coupled film and impingement cooling concentrated on the effect of the film depletion on the impingement heat transfer. This study investigates the impact of impingement on film cooling, where the jets impinging on a flat plate are depleted through arrays of film cooling holes in the presence of pressure gradient in ...
