  • Oliver, David A. (David Anthony), 1939- (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1975], 1975)
    Introduction: A potentially powerful method for predicting and describing turbulent flow fields is that of utilizing a finite number of moments of the instantaneous Navier-Stokes equations. This sequence of moment equations ...
  • Haynes, Joel M. (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1993], 1993)
    Stall inception in a three-stage axial compressor has been suppressed over a range of previously unstable operating points through the feedback of velocity perturbations to the inlet flow field. Perturbations were generated ...
  • Paduano, James D. (James Donald) (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1992], 1992)
    An active control system has been implemented on a low-speed single-stage axial compressor. This control system stabilizes the perturbations which normally lead to rotating stall, thus extending the range of operation of ...
  • Weigl, Harald Jürgen (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997, 1997)
    Rotating stall and surge have been stabilized in a transonic single-stage axial compressor using active feedback control. The control strategy is to sense upstream wall static pressure patterns and feed back the measured ...
  • Cumpsty, N. A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1992, 1992)
    Summary: Attempts to understand and predict the aerodynamic behaviour of compressors and turbines in aircraft gas turbines have been encouraged by the intense competitive pressure which exists. Many of the apparently most ...
  • Youngren, H. H. (Harold Hayes) (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991, 1991)
    A new computational method, MISES, is developed for turbomachinery design and analysis applications. The method is based on the fully coupled viscous /inviscid method, ISES, and is applicable to blade-to-blade analysis of ...
  • Fritsch, Gerd (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1992], 1992)
    A linear approach in two dimensions is used to investigate the second-order effects of unsteadiness on the efficiency of turbomachines. The three main themes are the identification of physical nature and location of unsteady ...
  • Seidel, Barry S. (Barry Stanley) (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1959, 1959)
    A modified actuator disc analysis is made which, through an improved prediction of the blade forces, attempts to give closer correspondence with experiment than the previous theory. The fluid is assumed inviscid and ...
  • Tan, Choon Sooi (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gas Turbine & Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    A new analytical method is proposed for the study of flow through highly-loaded turbomachine stages. The technique is used in the present study in order to: (i) analyze the three-dimensional induced effects of the viscous ...
  • Giles, M. (Michael); Thompkins, William T. (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine & Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1983], 1983)
    An asymptotic technique is developed for analysing the propagation and dissipation of wave-like solutions to finite difference equations. It is shown that for each fixed complex frequency there are usually several wave ...
  • Cho, Young-chung; Ingard, K. Uno (Cambridge : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1975], 1975)
    In the previous report, we have used approximate expressions for the wall impedance for the discussion of sound attenuation in lined circular ducts. For instance, Eq. (2.5) has been used for the wall impedance of a circular ...
  • Cho, Young-chung; Ingard, K. Uno (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory , Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1974], 1974)
    Extensive computations have been carried out of the attenuation characteristics of resonator and porous type duct liners in rectangular and circular ducts. First the frequency dependence of the attenuation constant and the ...
  • Hoying, Donald Andrew (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1996], 1996)
    A new computational approach has been developed to study the inception of rotating stall in axial compressors. Using this approach the flow structures within the compressor blade passages have been examined in order to ...
  • Martinez-Sanchez, Manuel; Gauthier, R. P. (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1990], 1990)
    The effects of blade-tip leakage in a turbine are investigated by modeling the stage as an incomplete actuator disk. It is found that the spanwise flow redistribution due to the gap is such as to produce a uniform unloading ...
  • Schneider, Kurt H. (Kurt Herbert) (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1958], 1958)
    A study of the discrepancy in lift between potential flow calculations and experiments was made. In potential flow the fluid is assumed to follow the contour of the airfoil, forming a stagnation point at the geometric ...
  • Peterson, Carl R. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1958], 1958)
    A study of the turbulent boundary layer on an airfoil in a cascade is presented. The major portion of the observations are on the suction surface of the airfoil. The effect of added diffusion across the cascade due to a ...
  • Moses, Hal Lynwood; Chappell, John R.; Goldberger, Tomas (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1965], 1965)
    An investigation of incompressible turbulent boundary layer separation in internal flow is presented with experimental results for a variable geometry, two-dimensional diffuser and two conical diffusers. A simple analytical ...
  • Moses, Hal Lynwood (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1962], 1962)
    The phenomenon of incompressible boundary layer separation and the existing methods of predicting it are discussed. The failure of these theories in many cases clearly indicates a need for further investigation. A program ...
  • Beasley, Cloyd Orris, 1933-; Meier, H. K. Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Rij, W. I. van. Oak Ridge National Laboratory; McCune, James E. (James Elliot) (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gas Turbine and Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, [1977], 1977)
    We derive an asymptotic series in [omega]p -2 , the inverse-square plasma frequency, for the self-consistent, low frequency electrostatic field in tori. The derivation is consistent with the drift-kinetic ordering and may ...
  • Kubota, Shigeo (Cambridge, Mass. : Gas Turbine Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1959], 1959)
    A theoretical method to estimate the effect of axial velocity change through a cascade was investigated. The change of axial velocity was reproduced by distributing sinks and sources within the blade passages, and the ...
