Structural and Thermal Analysis of Gas Turbine
A gas turbine is a device designed to convert the heat energy of fuel into useful work, such as mechanical shaft power. The gas turbine in its most common from is a rotary heat engine operating by means of series of processes consisting of air taken from the atmosphere, increase of gas temperature by constant pressure combustion of the fuel, the whole process being continuous. Turbine Blades are the most important components in a gas turbine power plant. A blade can be defined as the medium of transfer of energy from the gases to the turbine rotor. The turbine blades are mainly affected due to static.Also the temperature has significant effect on the blades. Therefore the turbine blades to be analysed for the mechanical andthermal stresses. The turbine blades analysis is carried out using finite element analysis software ANSYS.
