Eliminating the speed-increasing gear also reduces the compressor casing size by eliminating the need for a second shaft offset in the compressor casing.
Among its components for Bladon Jets are: combustion housing, exhaust ducts, compressor casing and air bleed chamber, main shaft, bearing housing, centrifugal system housing and a deswirl diffuser.
Postflight inspection revealed that the engine compressor casing had cracked in flight.
This jet-like flow at the trailing edge region is due to the jet flow leaking through the clearance between the tip of the rotor and the compressor casing. At this radial location, the velocity values close to the leading edge are almost uniform at around 2 m/s (or 1.64[V.sub.p]).
The horizontally split compressor casing enables the compressor rotor and blades to be inspected or cleaned on-site.
Different patterns of hollow structures in the axial compressor casing are employed to improve the tip end-wall flow fields.
The intake and compressor casing are two separate items made of an aluminum alloy.
Researchers retrofitted the compressor diaphragm into the SwRI closed loop centrifugal compressor casing. Instrumentation was installed internally in the compressor diaphragm as well as externally throughout the test loop to measure aerodynamic and heat transfer performance.
The primary turbine housing, which forms the engine's structural shell, includes the air inlet housing, compressor casing, main housing, and exhaust diffuser housing.
