Abstract:

This total program is directed toward development of a fixed boundary, shell-and-tube, gas-to-air recuperator, for a turboshaft gas turbine air craft engine, with 2000 hours design life. The object of Phase I of this recuperator development program is engineering designs, fabrication, and testing of full scale, 60 degree arc test sections and other required test specimens. Two different recuperator test sections were fabricated and tested. One was a U-tube unit with compressed air flowing through tubes and exhaust gas flowing over tubes EOT. The other was a straight tube unit with exhaust gas flowing through tubes and compressed air flowing over tubes.
