HOT CYCLE ROTOR SYSTEM THERMAL ANALYSIS, PART II
HUGHES TOOL CO CULVER CITY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A survey is given of estimated temperatures in the blade root and hub section of the initial hot cycle rotor. Initial thermal analysis indicated a necessity of applying insulation to prevent high temperatures in this area. Aluminum clad shields were subsequently installed over the hot gas ducting. Due to the conservative approach used in the calculations, the highest predicted component temperatures remain much below acceptable limits. No thermal problems are anticipated in this area of the rotor.
