Project description: M.Sc student for a 4 months Diploma Thesis in a fluid dynamic laboratory about pressure losses

The scope of the present Diploma Thesis is to use an existing test rig for investigating pressure losses in additively manufactured holes with different length to diameter ratios. During the thesis the student will acquire improved skills in dimensional analysis, data acquisition and mass flow/pressure/temperature measurements. In order to understand the flow behavior the results will be analyzed using classical theory and the student will get familiar with properties like e.g. vena contracta, pressure recovery, friction losses, choking, transition between laminar to turbulent flow. Also basic knowledge in additive manufacturing will be obtained as a part of the work. Similar test rigs have previously been used by diploma students at the fluid dynamics laboratory at Siemens, Finspång to investigate and develop correlations on pressure losses and heat transfer. All previous studies were published in the Journal of Turbomachinery and/or at ASME Turbo Expo (TURBO-14-1171, GT2014-25619, GT2015-42475, GT2017-64143, GT2018-75019).

The work will start at the end of 2019 or beginning of 2020 and be conducted in the fluid dynamic laboratory at the Siemens gas turbine site in Finspång, Sweden. An hourly wage will be offered for 4 months.

Estimated time                Task

0.5 month   Literature study and test rig commission

3 months     Pressure loss measurements and analysis

0.5 month   Writing Diploma Thesis

Who are you?

The goal of each of our Diploma Thesis’ is to create a work of publication quality. Therefore, our demands on the student are high and he/she must be familiar with gas dynamics, dimensional similarity, numerical methods and Matlab. You must also be very driven, ambitious and prepared to work hard. Good skills in English language are required both in speech and writing.
