    • Analysis Of Solid Particle Surface Impact Behavior In Turbomachines To Assess Blade Erosion And Fouling 

      Brun, Klaus; Nored, Marybeth; Kurz, Rainer (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2012)
      Solid particle admission is one of the principal damage and failure mechanisms in turbomachines such as gas turbines, axial, and centrifugal compressors. Significant interest exists within the turbomachinery industry to ...
    • GAS TURBINE PACKAGING OPTIONS AND FEATURES 

      Brun, Klaus; Kurz, Rainer; Nored, Marybeth (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2013)
      This tutorial provides an overview of typical packaging options for gas turbines in industrial applications. Applicable standards are discussed. The requirements for different systems, such as air filtration, and fuel ...
    • IMPACT OF PIPING IMPEDANCE AND ACOUSTIC CHARACTERISTICS ON CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR SURGE AND OPERATING RANGE 

      Brun, Klaus; Nored, Marybeth; Kurz, Rainer (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2015)
      The performance of a centrifugal compressor is usually defined by its head versus flow map, limited by the surge and stall regions. This map is critical to assess the operating range of a compressor for both steady state ...
    • INLET FOGGING AND OVERSPRAY IMPACT ON INDUSTRIAL GAS TURBINE LIFE AND PERFORMANCE 

      Brun, Klaus; Kurz, Rainer; Nored, Marybeth; Thorp, Joseph (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2013)
      The usage of an industrial inlet fogging and overspraying system on a 35,000 hp frame type industrial gas turbine in high pressure gas reinjection service was aimed to provide additional shaft power output and improved ...
    • Short Course T5 On Surge and Surge Control Systems 

      Brun, Klaus; DeVito, Kenneth; Moore, J. Jeffrey; Nored, Marybeth; White, Robert C. (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2011)
    • Valve Performance And Life Of Reciprocating Compressors 

      Brun, Klaus; Nored, Marybeth (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2012)
      The operation of a reciprocating compressor is closely linked to the performance of its valves in terms of life and efficiency. Most operators report that the most significant cause of forced outages of reciprocating ...
