...Pawel J. Przytarski; Andrew P. S. Wheeler In this paper, we study the effect of rotor-stator axial gap on midspan compressor loss using high-fidelity scale-resolving simulations. For this purpose, we mimic the multi-stage environment using a new numerical method that recycles wake unsteadiness from...

...Jeffrey P. Bons; Jon Pluim; Kyle Gompertz; Matthew Bloxham; John P. Clark The synchronous application of flow control in the presence of unsteady wakes was studied on a highly loaded low pressure turbine blade. At low Reynolds numbers, the blade exhibits a nonreattaching separation bubble under...
