1 Unified Engineering Spring Term 2004 Problem P9. (Propulsion) (L.O. G) Consider the turbine rotor shown below. The velocity (V 1 ) and absolute frame flow angle ( β 1 ) entering the rotor are fixed. The flow angle leaving the rotor in the relative frame ( β 2 ’) is also fixed. Further, β = β 2 ’. The rotor speed (r ω ) can be changed by varying the load on the shaft. Assume the axial velocity (w) entering and exiting the blade row is the same. a) Draw velocity triangles in the relative and absolute frames for the different blade speeds shown below for both the inlet and exit to the rotor. (Note the inlet velocity components form a 3-

Unformatted text preview: 4-5 triangle.) b) For the three cases drawn in part a), which extracts the most power from the flow and why? c) If you were asked to design for maximum power extraction and could choose any blade speed between 0 and r ω = 2w, what speed would you choose? You can argue this either graphically or with reference to the Euler Turbine Equation: d) For what rotational speed does the "turbine" in this example, begin to act like a compressor? What might you expect the aerodynamic performance to be for the blades in such a situation -good or bad, and why?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
