Measurements of the transient velocity field in a strongly curved diffusing bend with periodic inflow unsteadiness

Measurements of the transient velocity field in a strongly curved diffusing bend with periodic... This study examined the effects of periodic inflow unsteadiness on the flow development through fishtail-shaped diffusers utilized on small gas turbine engines. The periodic unsteadiness is due to the distortion of the flow in the peripheral direction at the exit of the centrifugal compressor impeller, caused by the jet-wake type of flow discharging from each impeller passage. Measurements of the transient velocity field were performed throughout the diffuser using a miniature 4-wire probe, at frequencies of inflow unsteadiness corresponding to design and off-design operating conditions in gas turbine installations. At the low end of the tested inflow unsteadiness frequencies, significant effects of inflow unsteadiness were observed on the time-averaged flow distortion throughout the diffuser. At these frequencies, the time variation of flow distortion was found to remain at comparable magnitudes throughout the diffuser. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
