Effects of Hot Streak & Phantom Cooling on Heat Transfer in a Cooled Turbine Stage Including Particulate Deposition

Performer: Ohio State University Research Foundation

Project No: FE0007156

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will modify the particulate deposition model developed in prior work to better account for the fundamental physics of particle impact and sticking. Turbine aerodynamics and heat transfer research will develop advanced cooling technology that will allow for higher firing temperatures which translate into increased cycle efficiency. Specifically, this project will refine the deposition model to include the evolution and migration of hot streaks and the effects of film cooling on hot streaks and deposition, and validate the data using the Turbine Reacting Flow Facility.
