Experimentelle Untersuchung einer transsonischen Verdichterstufe unter inhomogener Zuströmung

Experimental Investigation of a Transonic Compressor Stage under Inhomogeneous Inflow Conditions

Masterthesis

Background:

The effects of inhomogeneous inlet flow conditions on compressor behavior are being experimentally investigated on the transonic compressor test rig (TSV2) as part of a research project. For this purpose, the inlet inhomogeneity is generated via a so-called suction house, which deflects the air by 90° before it enters the compressor. Newly developed traversing devices at different axial positions allow a measurement of the flow channel over the entire circumference. In this master thesis, the circumferentially distributed measurement data will be evaluated, visualized and interpreted.

Tasks:

  • Literature research and familiarization with the problems of inhomogeneous inlet flow conditions
  • Support during the execution of the experiments at the compressor test bench
  • Extension of the evaluation tools using MATLAB
  • Evaluation, visualization and interpretation of the measurement data

Focus:

  • experimental
