Abstract : This series of publications document the activities and results of an AFOSR-funded, in-house, basic research effort. The effort was focused on the fluid mechanics and heat transfer that is associated with advanced turbine aerodynamic designs, particularly for small engines. The objectives of this task were to identify and evaluate loss mechanisms for very highly loaded turbines and turbines intended to operate at low Reynolds number, and investigate passive and fluidic techniques for the control of separation, reattachment, blade row outlet air angle deviations, secondary flows, and similar loss producing phenomena. The results are applicable to both military and civil applications of gas turbine engines. The following titles published in professional journals and conference proceedings (or unpublished) are provided in this addendum to AFRL-RQ-WP-TR-2013-0198: ? ?PIV Investigation of a Highly-Loaded LPT Blade Using a Curved Laser-Sheet? (88ABW-2008-1431) ? ?High Lift LPT Blade Suction Surface Flow Investigation Using Surface Stress Sensitive Film?
