Abstract

The following paper presents dynamic leakage rate and coupled interaction for variable speed rotor-labyrinth (LABY) seal, with rotating speed from 18 to 30 krpm. Variable speed rotor vibration characteristics are incorporated into transient computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculations as boundary conditions of seal flow field to show the real-time effect of rotordynamic in seal flow field. Leakage rate across a variable speed rotor-seal increases with rotor vibration, but this effect is prominent at lower speed than at higher speed. Leakage characteristic is determined by differences in rotor vibration amplitude rather than rotating speed. The results also reveal that aerodynamic forces of labyrinth seal flow field can improve rotor stability, and this interaction between rotor and seal decreases with the increase of rotating speed.

The following paper presents dynamic leakage rate and coupled interaction for variable speed rotor-labyrinth (LABY) seal, with rotating speed from 18 krpm to 30 krpm. Variable speed rotor vibration characteristics are incorporated into transient computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculations as boundary conditions of seal flow field to show the real-time effect of rotordynamic in seal flow field. Leakage rate across a variable speed rotor-seal increases with rotor vibration, but this effect is prominent at lower speed than at higher speed. Leakage characteristic is determined by differences in rotor vibration amplitude rather than rotating speed. The results also reveal that aerodynamic forces of labyrinth seal flow field can improve rotor stability, and this interaction between rotor and seal decreases with the increase of rotating speed.
