Tools and Essentials
We have put together a few useful tools to support you in your academic studies and give you a better insight into the exciting field of turbomachines. Enjoy!
We created a Tool „Geschwindigkeitsdreiecke“ (velocity triangles) to help you draw Geschwindigkeitdreiecke, understand the connection between the characteristics of turbomachinery and the triangles and get an idea of the mutual relationship between blade profiles and Geschwindigkeitsdreiecke.
Bonus: The Tool „Visual“
For its newest VR-project, the chair has visualized its four-stage axial compressor called eco.MAC. In the video below, you can see a simulation of the test rig’s wet compression at the inlet nozzle and the water injection behind the first stator. Note, however, that interstage injection is possible at all stators.
Due to the evaporation of the injected water, an isothermal compression process is approximated. As a result, the absorbed power of the compression process is reduced, which causes a considerable increase in efficiency.
With the help of virtual reality, students and industrial partners can explore the inner workings of our test benches and testing equipment.
The following literature is recommended for further study and review of the material covered in the lectures of the Chair.
