Question details

Problem 3.099 Turbine blades mounted to a rotating disc in a gas turbine engine are exposed to a gas stream that is at T1100 C and maintains a convection coefficient of h 300 W/m2 K over the blade. The blades, which are fabricated from Inconel, 20 W rm have a length of L-50 mm. The blade profile has a uniform cross sectional area of At-6 10-4 m 2 and a perimeter otP-110 mm, A proposed blade-cooling scheme, which involves routing air through the supporting disc, is able to maintain the base of each blade at a temperature of Tb300°C (a) If the maximum allowable blade temperature is 1050°C and the blade tip may be assumed to be adiabatic, is the proposed cooling schame satisfactory? (b) For the proposed cooling scheme, what is the rate at which heat is transferred from each blade to the coolant, w? T6 Blade tip stream Rotating disk Air coolant
