Increasing demand for reliable design of all kinds of structures requires materials properties evaluated under the conditions as close to real service conditions as possible. Presently resolved project dealing with development of new turbine blades geometry requires better understanding of the material behavior under service conditions. Service conditions of turbine blades are cyclic loading at high temperatures under superheated steam conditions. There are not commercially available testing systems providing such functionality and the system allowing samples loading under considered conditions is to be proposed. The paper deals with development of the testing equipment and testing procedure for high cycle fatigue tests in superheated steam corrosive environment. The system allowing cyclic loading at temperatures up to 650°C under superheated steam conditions was successfully designed, assembled and tested on series of testing samples. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This paper is concerned with the extension of second order residual distribution (RD) schemes to time dependent viscous flows. We provide a critical analysis of the use of a hybrid RD-Galerkin approach for both steady and time dependent problems. In particular, as in Ricchiuto (2008) and Villedieu etal. (2011), we study the coupling of a Residual Distribution (RD) discretization of the advection operator with a Galerkin approximation for the second order derivatives, with a Peclet dependent modulation of the upwinding introduced by the RD scheme. The final objective is to be able to achieve uniform second order of accuracy with respect to variations of the mesh size or, equivalently, of the local Peclet/Reynolds number. Starting from the scalar formulation given in the second order case in Ricchiuto etal. (2008), we perform an accuracy and stability analysis to extend the approach to time-dependent problems, and provide thorough numerical validation of the theoretical results. The schemes, formally extended to the system of laminar Navier-Stokes equations, are also compared to a finite volume scheme with least-squares linear reconstruction on the solution of standard test problems. While the scalar tests show the potential of this approach in providing uniform accuracy w.r.t. the range of values of the Peclet/Reynolds number, the results for the laminar Navier-Stokes equations show that in practice, the use of Peclet number based corrections does not change dramatically the quality of the solutions obtained. This justifies the quest for new formulations. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. Source

This paper deals with CFD analysis of a particular turbine impulse stage including the surrounding parts such as diaphragm seals, shroud seals and a disc axial gap, where balancing holes and a disc sealing is designed. The aim is to investigate effects on efficiency and axial forces by evaluation of a pressure distribution on the rotor disc and respective mass flow balances. As a result of this, the possible methodology of design optimization could be found. The other part of the project is to find the way for a more exact preliminary computation which is essential for increasing efficiency and the reduction of the axial forces. © 2016 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

The rotor of the turbine is monitored by sensors of the rotor vibrations arranged in at least one plane of measuring perpendicular to the axis of the rotor and by sensors of the absolute vibrations of the bearings. When using this method of processing, synchronically digitalized signals of the sensors of rotor vibrations, first the arithmetic mean of the individual harmonic bands in full spectrum in the frequency domain is calculated, by which means the information about the subharmonic components and their multiples in the full spectrum of these signals is transferred into the frequency band 1X to 1X, at the same time is by the calculation of the median estimated the level of the signal noise, with which individual frequency bands of the full spectrum are encumbered, and which is subtracted from the amplitudes in the individual frequency bands of full spectrum of the signals of the sensors.
