Unconventional blade design for compressors
(Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1969)
One of the factors causing the low efficiency of axial flow compressors operating at decreased flow rates is the flow separation at blade extremities. To postpone this tendency to separate to lower flow rates, compressor ...
Measurements of aerodynamic damping on the MIT transonic rotor
(Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine & Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1981)
A method has been developed and demonstrated for the direct measurement of aerodynamic forcing and aerodynamic damping of a transonic compressor. The method is based on the inverse solution of the structural dynamic equations ...
Detailed time resolved measurements and analysis of unsteady flow in a transonic compressor
Detailed time and space resolved measurements for a transonic compressor stage have been completed in the MIT Blowdown Compressor Facility. The stage studied was a new first stage for a NASA two-stage machine which ...
Uniform-inlet three-dimensional transonic Beltrami flow through a ducted fan
(Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gas Turbine Laboratory, , 1977)
Introduction: This report is a continuation of a line of analytical treatment of three dimensional flows in compressor or ducted fans. In the earlier theories [1,2,9,10], the blade row is modelled as a set of spinning ...
