MRes Gas Turbine Aerodynamics + PhD in Installation Effects on Variable Pitch Fans

Lead Research Organisation: University of Cambridge
Department Name: Engineering

Abstract

The forward thrust flow field is also important since the low speed
operating points at take-off and landing are prone to instabilities and any installation effects
may have a big impact on the engine performance.
The review of the existing literature on variable.
The plan includes the investigation of the ADP model using both unsteady
RANS simulations and experiments. Turbomachinery installation effects will be the main
subject of interest for the PhD project.
