DESIGN OF A REHEAT TURBINE

The design of a reheat turbine is dependent on the same complex analysis required in the design of any turbine machinery. There are, however, specific design considerations which apply uniquely to a reheat HP-IP turbine that relate to its ability to accommodate the thermal transients encountered during maneuvering. This paper covers these design considerations and shows the evolution of the reheat H:-IP turbine from the Navy series-parallel HP-IP design. Other design considerations of a reheat turbine are also presented. A cursory justification of reheat, along with example of its application, is given. It is hoped by providing better knowledge of reheat turbine design and by showing that the required design features are well within the state of the art that the use of reheat by the marine industry will be enhanced.
