Goal

The goal of this course is to teach the fundamentals of aerodynamic and mechanical design of thermal turbomachinery. After studying the Joule-Brayton thermodynamic process, the design of the major components of a heavy-duty gas turbine – compressor, combustion chamber, turbine, rotor, casing, and generator - are discussed with regard to aerodynamics, thermodynamics, and mechanical resilience. In addition to base-load operation, the importance of considering part-load and transient operation, e.g. startup and shutdown, in the design process is emphasized. The students are taught to realize that a turbomachine and its respective components are part of a complex system with often-conflicting design goals.
