  • Publication number: 20200332668
    Abstract: At least one turbine component for a gas turbine includes a base component formed by casting and an article. The base component includes a platform. The article on the upper surface of the platform is formed by additive manufacturing. The article has a proximal face sized and shaped to cover at least a portion of the upper surface of the platform of the turbine component and a contoured distal face opposite the proximal face. The contoured distal face has a contour surface serving as at least a portion of a hot gas path surface of the turbine component. The contour surface is arranged and disposed to provide a controlled flow pattern of a working fluid across the contour surface based on a clock mounting location of the turbine component in a turbine.

  • Patent number: 7914253
    Abstract: A system for regulating a cooling fluid within a turbomachine. The system may include a plurality of bypass chambers, wherein each of the plurality of bypass chambers allows for the cooling fluid to pass from the compressor section to the at least one wheelspace area. The system may also include a plurality of bypass plugs, wherein each of the plurality of bypass plugs is insertable into a bypass chamber opening on each of the plurality of bypass chambers.

  • Publication number: 20070184182
    Abstract: A trailing edge coupon for the trailing edge of a airfoil of a turbine nozzle segment is welded to an airfoil section of the nozzle segment having a damaged trailing edge portion removed. The coupon includes film cooling holes spaced one from the other along a pressure side wall portion of the coupon and a plurality of radially spaced openings along the trailing edge. By welding the pressure and suction side edges of the coupon to the pressure and side edges of the remaining portion of the airfoil, the operating life of the nozzle is extended.
