COLD-AIR PERFORMANCE OF THE COMPRESSOR-DRIVE TURBINE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY BASELINE AUTOMOBILE GAS-TURBINE ENGINE

The aerodynamic performance of the compressor-drive turbine of the DOE baseline gas-turbine engine was determined over a range of pressure ratios and speeds. In addition, static pressures were measured in the diffusing transition duct located immediately downstream of the turbine. Results are presented in terms of mass flow, torque, specific work, and efficiency for the turbine and in terms of pressure recovery and effectiveness for the transition duct.
