Project TitleRTD Radial-inflow Turbine Conceptual Design Code
Track CodeLEW-17453
DescriptionThe RTD code executes a conceptual design for a single-stage radial-inflow turbine having optimum-incidence entering the rotor. A meanline analysis is performed for the locations having constant radius over the blade span. Constant span-fraction sectors are used at the rotor exit, where there are significant radial gradients. The analysis can account for stator-endwall clearance flow that would occur with pivoting stators and for swept rotor blades. The loss model includes stator and rotor passage losses, which are Reynolds number dependent, and trailing-edge losses, vaneless-space loss, disk-friction loss, and rotor-exit clearance loss.
