In 2022 the aviation sector accounted for 1.9%of global greenhouse gas emissions, 2.5% of global CO2 emissions, and 3.5% of effective radiative forcing. To reach the long-term target of net zero emissions, revolutionary aircraft designs, featuring electrified or hydrogen powered propulsion systems, are needed. At the same time, the...

Modeling non-ideal compressible flows in the context of computational fluid-dynamics (CFD) requires the calculation of thermodynamic state properties at each step of the iterative solution process. To this purpose, the use of a built-in fundamental equation of state (EoS) in entropic form, i.e., s= s(e, ρ), can be particularly cost-effective,...

Non-ideal compressible flows exhibit physical behaviors that are quantitatively and qualitatively different than those of a perfect or ideal gas. As such, the classical gas dynamic relationships that can be found on fluid-mechanics textbooks cannot be directly applied to characterize this type of flows. NiceProp is a tool for interactively...

In this work we examine the flow deviation and its relationship to critical choking, i.e., choking of the meridional component of velocity, in transonic turbine cascades operating with non-ideal compressible flows. To this purpose, a generalized expression of the corrected flow per unit area as a function of both the thermodynamic state and...

The impact of size and working fluid on the efficiency, operating range, and axial thrust on bearings is examined for high-speed, oil-free centrifugal compressors. First, the development and validation of a reduced-order model based on scaling principles is documented. Then, the validated compressor model is used to generate design maps for...

The environmental control system (ECS) is the largest auxiliary power consumer, i.e, around 75% of non-propulsive power, among the aircraft subsystems. The adoption of a novel ECS architecture, based on an electrically-driven vapor compression cycle system, can enable a twofold increase of coefficient of performance (COP), as compared to the...

The impact of non-ideal compressible flows on the fluid-dynamic design of axial turbine stages is examined. First, the classical similarity equation (CSE) is revised and extended to account for the effect of flow non-ideality. Then, the influence of the most relevant design parameters is investigated through the application of a dimensionless...

In this work we examine the behavior of non-ideal compressible swirling flows. Based on a first-principle analysis, we derive a generalized expression of the corrected flow per unit area as function of the isentropic exponent, characteristic Mach numbers, and swirl parameter. The calculated trends of the corrected flow with respect to these...
