Design methodology of an axial-flow turbine for a micro jet engine
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The main components of a micro gas turbine engine are a centrifugal or mixed-flow compressor, a combustion chamber and a single stage axial-flow or radial-flow turbine. The goal of this thesis is to ...
The CFD simulation of an axial flow fan
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The purpose of this project is to investigate the method and accuracy of simulating axial ow fans with three-dimensional axisymmetric CFD models. Two models are evaluated and compared with experimental ...
The Design of an axial flow fan for air-cooled heat exchanger applications.
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Large air-cooled heat exchangers are used to cool process fluids in thermodynamic cycles in a range of industrial processes. These systems consume less water than wet-cooled systems and thus have major ...
Experimental and numerical analysis of axial flow fans
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The majority of power stations in South Africa are located in coal rich, but arid regions where wet-cooled condenser systems are not feasible from an environmental and economic perspective. Consequently ...
