A new linear cascade test facility for use in engineering education
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
A new low-speed air-operated linear cascade testfacility has been developed at the Heat and PowerTechnology Division at KTH, Sweden. The rig has fullyremote operability and is used as an educational tool forthe students in engineering courses on turbomachinery.Both on campus and distant students are involved inexperimental activities with the rig in the form oflaboratory exercises. The current setup allowsdetermination of profile losses through a low pressureturbine blade row at low subsonic flow conditions.The present paper contains a description of test rigdesign and its commissioning and introduces theconcepts for future applications of the facility ininvestigation of additional flow phenomena inturbomachinery. Findings of the first field experiencewith the linear cascade are here reported.
