    • Labyrinth Seal Leakage Analysis 

      Inam, Orcun (2012-10-19)
      Annular seals are devices used in turbomachinery to avoid flow losses which reduce efficiency. The dynamic stability of the machine is also improved by the seal. Thus, it is an important subject to understand the flow ...
    • A novel isolation curtain to reduce turbine ingress heating and an advanced model for honeycomb labyrinth seals 

      Choi, Dong Chun (Texas A&M University, 2006-08-16)
      A combination of 3-D and 2-D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling as well as experimental testing of the labyrinth seal with hexagonal honeycomb cells on the stator wall was performed. For the 3-D and 2-D CFD models, ...
    • A NUMERICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF WINDBACK SEALS 

      Lim, Chae H. (2010-01-16)
      Windback seals work similarly to labyrinth seals except for the effect of helical groove. These seals are essentially a tooth on stator or tooth on rotor labyrinth seal where the grooves are a continuous helical cut like ...
    • Windback seal design for gas compressors: a numerical and experimental study 

      Al-Ghasem, Adnan Mahmoud (Texas A&M University, 2007-09-17)
      Seals are considered one of the important flow elements of a turbomachinery device. Traditional labyrinth seals have proven their performance functionality by reducing leakage rates. Significant improvements on labyrinth ...
