Abstract

A feature of a modern aeronautical Low-Pressure Turbine (LPT) is the high blade loadings with complex, transient and separated flow regimes. Most existing research have focused only on analysing the transient flow and flow separation in such turbines. The aerodynamics of a modern LPT, however, can be significantly influenced by the interaction between the unsteady flow field and the blade structure motion in a complex non-linear fashion which could lead to aeroelastic instabilities such as flutter. Therefore, the understanding of the mechanism of the interaction between the flow field unsteadiness and the blade structure in a modern LPT is essential to examine the vibration stress levels to ensure the blade mechanical integrity. The novelty of this paper, first and foremost, is using a high-fidelity direct numerical simulation method to explore the mechanism of flutter and forced response in a modern LPT, T106A.....
