The Density and Momentum Distributions of 2-Dimensional Transonic Flow in an LP-Steam Turbine
Abstract: Within turbine blade rows, particularly for cascades of high deflection angle, cross-channel gradients of steam properties may be appreciable. To determine the effects on spontaneous condensation of gradients of supersaturation normal to streamlines, the conservation equations can be incorporated in a two dimensional calculation procedure. With the help of program FORTRAN 90 a developed computational program of calculations is accomplished, whose results are communicated to the pressure and Mach number distribution, direction of flow and streamlines in the field and the drops distribution in the outlet of the stator blade mesh. The procedure contains a program section, which avoids difficulties in the strongly curved profile of the leading and trailing edge by a developed computational mesh construction.
