Inverse Design Of And Experimental Measurements In A Double-Passage Transonic Turbine Cascade Model, G. M. Laskowski, A. Vicharelli, G. Medic, C. J. Elkins, J. K. Eaton, Paul A. Durbin

Paul A. Durbin

A new transonic turbine cascade model that accurately produces infinite cascade flow conditions with minimal compressor requirements is presented. An inverse design procedure using the Favre-averaged Navier-Stokes equations and k-ε turbulence model based on the method of steepest descent was applied to a geometry consisting of a single turbine blade in a passage. For a fixed blade geometry, the passage walls were designed such that the surface isentropic Mach number (SIMN) distribution on the blade in the passage matched the SIMN distribution on the blade in an infinite cascade, while maintaining attached flow along both passage walls. An experimental rig ...
