Turbines are essential components of jet planes and power plants. [...] Key Method Since it is known that splat events have a substantial impact on the heat transfer between flow and immersed surfaces, we adapt a splat detection and visualization method to a turbine cascade simulation in this case study. Because splat events are small phenomena, we use a direct numerical simulation resolving the turbulence in the flow as the base of our analysis. The outcome shows promising insights into splat formation and its…Expand

Collaborating Successfully with Domain Experts
This chapter collects experiences and ideas that should help make collaborations with domain experts a success, and takes a broad definition of collaboration as the basis of the discussions, i.e., any close cooperation between visualization experts and domain experts. Expand


Effects of Unsteady Wakes on the Secondary Flows in the Linear T106 Turbine Cascade
In modern low pressure turbines the efforts to increase aerodynamic blade loading by increasing blade pitch and optimising midspan performance in order to reduce weight and complexity can produceExpand
DNS of the Flow Near the Endwall in a Linear Low Pressure Turbine Cascade With Periodically Passing Wakes
Direct numerical simulations (DNS) were used to study the effects of periodic incoming wakes on the flow near the endwall in a linear turbine cascade T106. The moving cylindrical bars generating theExpand
Secondary Flows in Low-Pressure Turbines Cascades: Numerical and Experimental Investigation of the Impact of the Inner Part of the Boundary Layer
Due to the low level of profile losses reached in low-pressure turbines (LPT) for turbofan applications, a renewed interest is devoted to other sources of loss, e.g. secondary losses. At the sameExpand
Endwall loss in turbine cascades
The impact of key design parameters on endwall loss in turbines, a problem which remains poorly understood, is examined in a quantitative manner, examining the impact of flow angles, blade thickness and suction surface aerodynamics. Expand
Convective Heat Transfer and Aerodynamics in Axial Flow Turbines
The primary focus of this paper is convective heat transfer in axial flow turbines. Research activity involving heat transfer generally separates into two related areas: predictions and measurements.Expand
Large-Eddy Simulation study of turbulent mixing in a T-junction
A potential cause of thermal fatigue failures in energy cooling systems is identified with cyclic stresses imposed on a piping system. These are generated due to temperature changes in regions whereExpand
Direct numerical simulations of transition in a compressor cascade: the influence of free-stream turbulence
The flow through a compressor passage without and with incoming free-stream grid turbulence is simulated. At moderate Reynolds number, laminar-to-turbulence transition can take place on both sides ofExpand
