Default Turbine flow simulation data
Mohan Varma
Posts: n/a
I am planning to simulate flow in low pressure axial flow turbines at high turbulence levels. I have gone through many publications, but I was not even able to get 3-D turbine blade profiles for flow simulation. If any one have any information about the references for the geometry profiles and simulation data, please let me know

Thanking you for your consideration

There was a VKI (von Karman Institute, Belgium) Lecture series in 1989 that had some test case for 3-d flow. I can also recommend Fottner,L. ,'Test Cases for Computation of internal flows in Aero Engine Components', AGARD AR275,1990.

as Rainer said the VKI has data on airfoil shapes etc for validation purposes, i suppose they can send you the info digitally if you ask nice. the ASME also had some 3-d geometries for a blind test case a couple years back. i guess it'd have the journal of turbomachinery

Dear Mr.Varma,

We are also incidentally looking for similar data for modelling of low pressure axial steam turbine stages.

The only possible way is to contact a power utility /GT user ,obtain an used up/damaged blade from which you can generate the data by a CMM.

If I could succeed in getting the data, I will certainly share with you the same.

Thanking You
