Numerical investigation of dense gas flows through transcritical multistage axial Organic Rankine Cycle turbines
TypeCommunications avec actes
Many recent studies suggest that supercritical Organic Rankine Cycles have a great potential for lowtemperature heat recovery applications, since they allow better recovery efficiency for a simplified cycle architecture. In this work we investigate flows of dense gases through axial, multi-stage, supercritical ORC turbines, using a numerical code including advanced equations of state and a high-order discretization scheme. Several working fluids are considered, and performances of supercritical turbines are compared to those of subcritical ones using the same fluids.

Multi-fidelity optimization strategy for the industrial aerodynamic design of helicopter rotor blades LEUSINK, Debbie; ALFANO, David; CINNELLA, Paola (Elsevier, 2015)The industrial aerodynamic design of helicopter rotor blades needs to consider the two typical flight conditions of hover and forward flight simultaneously. Here, this multi-objective design problem is tackled by using a ...
