Numerical Assessment of Four-Port Through-Flow Wave Rotor Cycles With Passage Height Variation

Abstract

The potential for improved performance of wave rotor cycles through the use of passage height variation is examined. A Quasi-one-dimensional CFD code with experimentally validated loss models is used to determine the flowfield in the wave rotor passages. Results indicate that a carefully chosen passage height profile can produce substantial performance… (More)
