Goal

 

Understanding the fundamentals of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics; their application in thermal flow machinery, e.g. gas turbines, steam turbines, exhaust gas turbochargers, axial compressors and radial compressors.

Content
  • Overview of applications and construction designs for thermal turbomachinery (e.g. aircraft engines, gas turbines and steam turbines for power plants, turbochargers and compressors for industrial purposes)
  • Energy conversion in a single stage of a turbomachine
  • Fundamentals of thermodynamics: changes of state of the working medium, thermodynamic cycles and efficiencies
  • Design of a blade cascade, physical cascade flow, characteristic blade parameter and setup of whole stages out of cascades
  • Typical examples for the design of radial compressors, axial compressors and turbines using the example of a gas turbine
