Analytical Investigation of Fuel-Cooled Turbine Blades With Return-Flow Type of Finned Coolant Passages
Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation of coolant-flow rates for a turbine rotor blade with return-flow type of coolant-passage configuration formed by fins within a capped blade shell with both hydrogen and methane fuels as coolants. Results regarding spanwise blade and coolant temperature distributions, effects of coolant inlet temperature on hydrogen-coolant-flow requirements, comparison of return-flow-blade coolant requirements, effect of fin thickness and fin height, comparison of hydrogen and methane as coolants, and feasibility of fuel-cooled turbines are provided.
