CFD for Aero Engines

CFD for Aero Engines

Abstract

The rapid progress and implementation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has contributed to substantial improvements in the performance and efficiency of Gas Turbine engine components through enhanced understanding of the complex viscous flow and heat transfer phenomena involved. For this reason, CFD is one of the key computational tool used in Design & development of gas turbine engines. The document gives a fundamental understanding of Computational Fluid Dynamics as applied to the analysis and design  of components that are being executed in aerospace industries using commercially available CFD tools. 

Excerpts from the Paper
For the concerns over carbon emissions and the high cost of fuel initiated, focus for improved efficiency. Noise impact on the world triggered another environmental concern. The aerodynamic drag is the key for efficient and high speed cruise, in the mean time high lift is essential for safe takeoff and landing. CFD plays a major role in aircraft aerodynamics, where the requirements continue to push the capabilities of CFD technology.
CFD tools are being used increasingly in gas turbine development with positive results and are able to solve these problems cost effectively. Here focus is mainly on analysis of such situations where temperature and heat transfer co-efficient (HTC) mapping are the key criterion.
