PRELIMINARY TURBINE DESIGN FOR THERMAL CYCLE FEASIBILITY

Mathematical models of an axial flow turbine and a radial inflow turbine were developed. Utilizing these models, a computer program was written such that given a thermal cycle and a minimum of imput variables, the necessary turbine design calculations are performed. An extensive output is provided such that the designer may utilize this output in order to evaluate the practical feasibility of the given thermal cycle. The Zener sea cycle is used as a test case with axial and radial designs examined for feasibility. The computer program is written in the Fortran IV language specifically to be run on the Interdata 70 computer.
