  • Patent number: 10309252
    Abstract: A shroud segment that includes a body including a leading edge, a trailing edge, a first side edge, a second side, and a pair of opposed lateral sides. A first lateral side is configured to interface with a cavity having a cooling fluid, and a second lateral side is oriented toward a hot gas flow path. The shroud segment includes at least one channel disposed within the body, wherein the at least one channel includes a first portion extending from upstream of the trailing edge towards the trailing edge in a first direction from the leading edge to the trailing edge, a second portion extending from the trailing edge to upstream of the trailing edge in a second direction from the trailing edge to the leading edge, and a third portion extending from upstream of the trailing edge towards the trailing edge in the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10221719
    Abstract: A shroud segment that includes a body including a leading edge, a trailing edge, a first side edge, a second side, and a pair of opposed lateral sides. A first lateral side is configured to interface with a cavity having a cooling fluid, and a second lateral side is oriented toward a hot gas flow path. The shroud segment includes a first channel disposed within the body having a first end portion and a second end portion and a second channel disposed within the body having a third end portion and a fourth end portion. The first and second channels are configured to receive the cooling fluid from the cavity to cool the body. The first end portion and the fourth end portion each include a hook-shaped portion having a free end.

  • Publication number: 20170260873
    Abstract: A host gas flow path component includes a body including a leading edge, a trailing edge, a first side edge, a second side edge, and a pair of opposed lateral sides. A first lateral side is configured to interface with a cavity having a cooling fluid. The hot gas flow path component includes a supply channel disposed within the body and extending from the cavity to adjacent the leading edge or the trailing edge. The hot gas flow path component includes a channel disposed within the body adjacent the trailing edge or the leading edge. The channel extends across the body in a direction from the first side edge toward the second side edge. The channel is configured to receive the cooling fluid from the cavity to cool the trailing edge or the leading edge via an intermediate channel extending between the supply channel and the channel.

  • Publication number: 20170175576
    Abstract: A shroud segment for use in gas turbines, includes a body, leading edge, trailing edge, a first and second side edge, and a pair of opposed lateral sides between the leading and trailing edges and the first and second side edges. A first lateral side of the lateral sides interface with a cavity having a cooling fluid. A second lateral side interfaces with a hot gas flow path. A first channel disposed within the body includes a first and second end portion. A second channel is disposed within the body includes a third and fourth end portion. The first and second channels receive the cooling fluid from the cavity to cool the body. The first and fourth end portion have portions with free ends having a width greater than an adjacent portion coupled to the free end.

  • Patent number: 8827641
    Abstract: A turbine nozzle is provided including a nozzle airfoil having an airfoil shape, the nozzle airfoil having a nominal profile substantially in accordance with Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y and Z set forth in Table 1 wherein the Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y and Z are non-dimensional values from 0% to 100% convertible to dimensional distances in inches by multiplying the Cartesian coordinate values of X, Y and Z by a height of the airfoil in inches, and wherein X and Y are distances in inches which, when connected by smooth continuing arcs, define airfoil profile sections at each distance Z, the airfoil profile sections at Z distances being joined smoothly with one another to form a complete airfoil shape.
