Abstract:

This is a summary of the work performed under Job Order Number 2307S315. This was an in-house task funded under AFOSR ILIR grants 92PR07COR and 02PR02COR. This task and its predecessors have been in continual operation since 1985 and have covered a broad range of topics relating to the aerodynamics and thermodynamics of the turbine module of gas turbine engines. The work initially focused on the effects of very high turbulence freestream flows on the development of the boundary layers of the turbine component, with particular attention to the effect on heat transfer. It has also persued techniques for the control of airfoil boundary layers and cooling flows and the development of advanced techniques for the measurement and study of these flows.
