  • Patent number: 10563584
    Abstract: Combustor panels including panel bodies with first and second sides, a pin array extending from the first side, wherein each pin extends a first height, has a pin diameter, and is separated from adjacent pins by a pin array separation distance. A structural protrusion extends from the first side. No pins of the pin array are located within a flashing distance that is equal to a protrusion separation distance plus half of the pin diameter, wherein a location of the pin is measured from a center point of the pin to a closest point on the exterior surface of the structural protrusion. At least one pin array extension is integrally formed with the structural protrusion, the pin array extension extending along the first side to a position that replaces a pin of the pin array that would be within the flashing distance.

  • Patent number: 10508759
    Abstract: A flowpath assembly has a first conduit defining a flowpath radially inward, and a second conduit spaced radially outward from the first conduit. A void defined between the first and second conduits contains an insulating material that may have a greater porosity than the first and second conduits. The assembly may be additive manufactured generally as one unitary piece with the raw material of the conduits being melted and solidified on a slice-by-slice basis and the insulating material being selectively bypassed by an energy gun of an additive manufacturing system.

  • Patent number: 10480868
    Abstract: A tube assembly that may be for a fuel nozzle of a fuel system of a gas turbine engine may have a first tube defining a first flowpath along a centerline, a second tube generally spaced radially outward from the first tube with a first void located between and defined by the first and second tubes, and a support structure located in the first void and extending between the first and second tubes. The support structure is constructed and arranged to minimize or eliminate thermal conduction between the tubes. The entire assembly may be additive manufactured as one unitary piece. One example of a method of operation may include designed-for breakage of the structural support due to thermal stresses thereby further minimizing thermal conduction between tubes.

  • Patent number: 10386067
    Abstract: A wall panel assembly includes a first liner panel and a coating. The first liner panel has an inner first liner panel surface and a first liner panel outer surface each axially extending between a first liner panel first end and a first liner panel second end. The coating is disposed on at least one of the first liner panel inner surface and the first liner panel outer surface. The coating has an overall thickness that varies axially between the first liner panel first end and the first liner panel second end.

  • Patent number: 10208673
    Abstract: A fluid dispensing apparatus that may be additive manufactured as one unitary piece and may be a fuel injector for a gas turbine engine includes a radial displacement bellows having an outer surface that faces and may be exposed to a surrounding environment and an interior surface that faces and may define at least in-part a flowpath extending along a centerline. The radial displacement bellows is constructed and arranged to move between an expanded state when a pressure differential between the environment and the flowpath is low to a restricted state when the pressure differential is high.
