The present problem simulates the Cooling of Turbine Blade by ANSYS Fluent Turbine. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

To simplify the problem model, considering the symmetrical structure of the turbine body and its blades, only one blade is simulated. The main purpose of the problem is to investigate the temperature distribution and changes in thermal energy on the body and turbine blade.

Therefore, the process of simulating the model and defining the boundary conditions of the model is performed in such a way that the fluid behavior is focused on heat transfer.

The cooling process in this model is based on the definition of cool airflow in an empty space in the inner walls of the blade. These inner walls have a series of holes to increase the contact surface with the cold flow and thus increase the cooling process.

The present 3-D model is drawn using the CATIA software and then imported into the Design Modeler software. The meshing of the present model has been done using ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is unstructured and the element number is equal to 10154723.

Turbine Blade Methodology

The boundary condition of heat transfer has been used on the surfaces of the outer and inner walls of the blade. The outer surface of the blade and its lower body, which are under the hot working airflow of the system, have a transfer coefficient of 200 watts per cubic meter and a temperature of 1672 Kelvin.

However, the inner surface of the blade, which is cooled by the cold airflow, has a heat transfer coefficient of 200 watts per cubic meter under a cold flow of 300 Kelvin.

Turbine Blade Conclusion

After the solution process is complete, 2-D and 3-D temperature contours are obtained in the space between the outer wall of the blade (in contact with the hot flow) and the inner wall of the blade (in contact with the cooling flow).

Also, the amount of heat transfer coefficient is obtained on the inner and outer walls of the blade and the blade base.

The two-dimensional contours in the XZ section are drawn at different distances of 0.004, 0.016, 0.028 and 0.04 meters from the upper surface of the blade base, as well as in the XY section at different distances

    Is there any analysis available regarding the efficiency of the turbine blade cooling system and how different variables impact this efficiency?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In our simulation, we focus on examining the temperature distribution and thermal energy changes on the body and turbine blade. While direct efficiency calculations have not been specified in the provided training tutorial, analyzing the temperature contours and heat transfer coefficients allows for extrapolation of cooling efficiency. Understanding the relationship between surface temperatures, internal cooling airflow, and materials contributes to evaluating the cooling system’s performance. We encourage users to explore how variations in parameters such as external heat flux, internal flow rate, and material properties might affect cooling efficiency within the simulation’s framework.

    Can this simulation help in optimizing the cooling flow rate to enhance the blade cooling without compromising the blade’s material integrity?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, the simulation provides detailed temperature distribution and heat transfer coefficients, which can be used to assess the cooling flow effectiveness. It’s possible to make adjustments to the cooling flow rate and analyze the subsequent changes in heat transfer to find an optimal balance for effective cooling without causing thermal stress that could compromise material integrity.

    Is the simulated airflow within the hollow section of the turbine blade able to reliably demonstrate how the blade will perform under actual operating temperatures and conditions?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, the CFD simulation’s primary aim is to realistically replicate the cooling airflow within the turbine blade under specified operating conditions, giving insights into the performance of the cooling strategy at actual temperatures and conditions experienced during turbine operation.

    Was there an evaluation of the effectiveness of the cooling in different sections of the blade based on the simulation results?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation for the Turbine Blade Cooling project using ANSYS Fluent, effectiveness of the blade cooling is evaluated through multiple 2-D and 3-D temperature contours. These results quantify the temperature gradients and allow the assessment of how efficiently the cool airflow performs within the internal passages, specifically on the inner and outer walls as well as along the length of the blade.

    The training has helped me tremendously in visualizing and understanding how the cooling process of a turbine blade is simulated. I am intrigued by how the inner walls are designed with holes to increase the heat transfer area. Did the training also cover how the presence of these holes affects the overall structural integrity of the blade during operation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The main focus of this CFD project is on the heat transfer and cooling aspects of the turbine blade, and while the presence of holes aims to increase the efficiency of cooling, the training material seems to concentrate primarily on thermal aspects rather than structural integrity. Structural analysis may be covered separately or perhaps integrated into more advanced training sessions dedicated to holistic design evaluations that take into account both thermal and structural performance factors.

    Are the holes on the inner walls of the blade modeled directly in the simulation, and how does their presence affect the cooling effectiveness?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, the holes on the inner walls of the blade are directly modeled within the simulation to accurately evaluate their impact on the cooling process. Their presence increases the contact surface area with the cool airflow, promoting improved heat transfer and consequently more effective cooling of the turbine blade.

    I’m curious about the heat transfer on the outer wall of the blade. Is it homogenous across the surface or does it vary significantly in different areas due to the airflow and cooling holes?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The heat transfer on the outer wall of the blade typically shows variations across the surface. This variation is due to several factors, such as the non-uniform hot working airflow over the blade, the presence of the cooling holes, and the complex geometry of the blade itself. In this simulation, heat transfer is influenced by the local flow characteristics and distribution of the cooling holes, resulting in non-homogeneous thermal profiles on the blade surface.

    Is there any explanation provided for how the cool airflow in the holes contributes to the efficiency of the cooling process?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, the provided materials would include a detailed explanation of how the cool airflow through the holes in the inner walls of the turbine blade enhances the cooling efficiency. This is achieved by increasing the contact surface area between the cool airflow and the hot surfaces within the blade. By doing so, the cool airflow extracts more heat from the turbine blade, thus improving the cooling process efficiency.
