Abstract:

Magnetic resonance-based velocity MRV and concentration MRC measurements were performed to measure the time averaged three-dimensional, three-component velocity and scalar concentration fields in a double passage vane cascade representative of a high pressure turbine vane from a gas turbine engine. The understanding and prediction of the highly three-dimensional flow and heat transfer in a modern gas turbine engine is a problem that has not been solved over many years of turbomachinery research.
