Abstract
THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVING AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINE PERFORMANCE BYUSING HEAT PIPE HEAT EXCHANGERS TO ACCOMPLISH MULTIPLE INTERCOOLING AND REHEAT. THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE INCORPORATED INTO THE COMPRESSOR AND TURBINE CASTINGS. THIS GOAL WILL BE ACHIEVED BY: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN STUDIES OF INTEGRAL MULTIPLE INTERCOOLING COMPRESSORS AND INTEGRAL MULTIPLE REHEAT TURBINES, EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF THIS EQUIPMENT ON EFFICIENCY AND AIR RATE, AND IDENTIFICATION OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT NEEDS. RESULTS OBSTAINED WILL ESTABLISH THE EXTENT TO WHICH ISOTHERMAL COMPRESSION AND EXPANSION CAN BE APPROXIMATED IN AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINES, AND THE PERFORMANCE GAINS TO BE EXPECTED.
