Title: Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis Capability for Gas Turbine Component Design
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8650-08-M-2842
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Turbine performance increases through increasing turbine inlet gas temperature which can result in reduced turbine durability. Currently the design practices employed by the major OEM's for cooled turbine airfoils are generally very empirical in nature and can easily miss important physical behavior thereby compromising airfoil durability. This in turn leads to turbine airfoil durability issues resulting in higher operating costs and weapon system reliability shortcomings. AeroDynamic Solution LLC is propose to develop a robust physics based conjugate heat transfer analysis approach and computational methods that can be readily integrated into the design systems of gas turbine industry OEM's.
