Experimental study of lean premixed prevaporized combustion fluctuations in a gas turbine burner

Numerous experimental studies and numerical models were developed to understand the behavior of gas turbines with LPP technology; in particular, several researches are undergoing to better understand fuel/air interaction in the premixing duct, upstream of the combustion chamber. In this article, studies were performed on kerosene lean premixed flames in a LPP burner by mean of Planar Laser Light Scattering and a new technology such as FAst InfraRed Imaging varying the Air Fuel Ration (AFR). Both techniques evidenced oscillation frequencies around 100Hz both under cold conditions and combustion. Typical frequencies bias toward combustion were identified. The FAIRI technique allowed us to identify frequencies up to several kHz in the 2D dimensions. The investigations also evidenced that the typical frequencies shifted up while increasing AFR. Finally, the analysis of the frequency slope allowed us to characterize the turbulence levels along the flame.


Experimental investigation of an oil loss mechanism in internal combustion engines
Sezer, Ahmet; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Oil loss mechanisms in internal combustion engines have been subject to many researches. By the help of technological developments effects of several problems due to oil losses were examined and tried to be reduced. Environmental pollution and performance loss are important issues that oil consumption in internal combustion engines contribute. In this study the effects of individual parameters on the oil accumulation in 2nd land crevice of internal combustion engines, volume between top compression rings, w...
Experimental Investigation of Effusion and Film Cooling for Gas Turbine Combustor
İnanlı, Sinan; Yasa, Tolga; Ulaş, Abdullah (2016-07-12)
Experimental study was conducted to understand the heat transfer characteristics of film or effusion cooled test plates that represent the gas turbine combustor liner. Two effusion cooling test plates having different hole angles (30 and 75° with horizontal) were used. Film cooling tests were conducted by six different slot geometries. Test geometries were the scaled-up model of real combustor liner. Three different blowing ratios were applied for each test plate geometry. Surface cooling effectiveness was ...
In situ combustion model development and its applications for laboratory studies
Ocalan, Ramazan; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1995-01-01)
A one-dimensional in situ combustion model was developed for oil and gas production calculations using a frontal-advance theory combined with mass and energy balance equations and simplified by boundary conditions, limitations and assumptions. The model is run for data from laboratory combustion tube experiments. Model runs for such experiments show that the results are in good agreement with the experimental values for the dry combustion mode, but not for the wet combustion mode where the water injection i...
Aerothermodynamic modeling and simulation of gas turbines for transient operating conditions
Koçer, Gülru; Uzol, Oğuz; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, development of a generic transient aero-thermal gas turbine model is presented. A simulation code, gtSIM is developed based on an algorithm which is composed of a set of differential equations and a set of non-linear algebraic equations representing each gas turbine engine component. These equations are the governing equations which represents the aero-thermodynamic process of the each engine component and they are solved according to a specific solving sequence which is defined in the simul...
Experimental Investigation of Aerodynamic Interactions of Vehicles in Close Folowing and Passing Situations
Gümüşlüol, Ünsal; Çetinkaya, Tahsin Ali; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this Thesis study, aerodynamic interactions of vehicle models in close following and passing situations were investigated expeimentally. Effect of the inter-vehicle spacing and lateral distance on drag coefficients of two close-following vehicles were observed. Two different types of vehicle models were used in order to investigate the shape effect on aerodynamic vehicle interactions. Drag froces and surface pressures of the models at each situation were measured. Two different blockage correction method...
