Gas turbine combustor performance was explored by utilizing a 1-D flow network model. To obtain the preliminary performance of combustion chamber, three different flow network solvers were coupled with a chemical reactor network scheme. These flow solvers were developed via simplified, segregated and direct solutions of the nodal equations. Flow models were utilized to predict the flow field, pressure, density and temperature distribution inside the chamber network. The network model followed a segregated flow and chemical network scheme, and could supply information about the pressure drop, nodal pressure, average temperature, species distribution, and flow split. For the verification of the model's results, analyses were performed using CFD on a seven-stage annular test combustor from TUSAS Engine Industries, and the results were then compared with actual performance tests of the combustor. The results showed that the preliminary performance predictor code accurately estimated the flow distribution. Pressure distribution was also consistent with the CFD results, but with varying levels of conformity. The same was true for the average temperature predictions of the inner combustor at the dilution and exit zones. However, the reactor network predicted higher elemental temperatures at the entry zones.


A multiscale analytical correction technique for two-dimensional thermal models of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs
Azarifar, Mohammad; Donmezer, Nazli (2017-07-01)
Two-dimensional approaches are widely used in the numerical thermal models of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to reduce the high computational cost of the three-dimensional approaches. The aforementioned simplified models predict inaccurate device temperatures with significant overestimation of the thermal resistance. In order to take advantage of the computational efficiency of the two-dimensional models, a correction procedure is necessary for the accurate representation of the actual...
A Generalized Staging Optimization Program For Space Launch Vehicles
Civek-Coskun, Ezgi; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2013-06-14)
This paper addresses the staging optimization problem for multistage rockets which carry payloads from the Earth's surface into the Earth orbits. In the early design phases, requirements are not so strict, there are many unknowns and problem arises as to what is the optimum staging to achieve the given mission. Therefore, designers need simplified tools providing a quick insight on the vehicle performance with minimum basic vehicle data. For this purpose, a Matlab (R) based computer program has been written...
A Coupled flow and chemical reactor network model for predicting gas turbine combustor performance
Hataysal, Seyfettin Ertan; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
A 1D flow and chemical reactor network model was developed to predict the performance of a combustor chamber and the model output was verified by the 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis and experimental measurements of the chamber. To obtain chamber flow split three different nodal flow network solvers were coupled with a chemical reactor network model. Simplified, segregated and direct solutions of the nodal equations were led to these three different flow solvers. Flow models were utilized to p...

Heat transfer from a solid surface to a fluid-solid suspension in vertical or horizontal transport is of importance in the design of heat-exchangers, driers, fluidized beds, and slurry pipeline reactors. There are fewer studies on heat transfer in liquid-solid flows than on gas-solid flows. In this paper, a correlation for heat transfer to dilute liquid-solid flows in a horizontal pipe is presented. Suspension properties were used to derive the following equation: Nu(s) = 0.202Res0.6Prs0.675(D/d(p))0.092(mu...
A model for predicting vertical component peak ground acceleration (PGA), peak ground velocity (PGV), and 5% damped pseudospectral acceleration (PSA) for Europe and the Middle East
Ertuğrul, Zehra; Kale, Ozkan; SANDIKKAYA, MUSTAFA ABDULLAH (2017-07-01)
In this study, we present a ground-motion model for the vertical component of peak ground acceleration, peak ground velocity, and 5% damped pseudo acceleration response spectra at periods ranging from 0.01 to 4 s. The vertical model is based on the ground-motion models previously developed for the horizontal component and vertical-to-horizontal ratio of ground motion by Akkar et al. (Bull Earthq Eng 12:359-387, 2014a; 517-547, 2014b) rather than on an independent regression analysis of strong-motion data av...
