Abstract:

The trajectories of solid particles entrained by fluid flow in turbine and compressor stators were calculated. The impact and rebound phenomena of the solid particles was investigated experimentally and then considered in the solution of the equations of motion of the solid particles. The effect of the particle mean diameter, material density, and initial particle and gas velocities on the dynamic behavior of the solid particles through the cascade channel was also investigated. In addition, this study yielded information concerning blade erosion damage.
