  • Publication number: 20210010375
    Abstract: A bladed rotor system includes first and second sets of blades with respective airfoils each having at least one internal cavity. The airfoils of both the first and second sets of blades have identical outer shapes defined by an outer surface of an outer wall of the respective airfoils. The airfoils of the first set of blades are distinguished from the airfoils of the second set of blades by a geometry and/or position of at the least one internal cavity, which is unique to blades of a given set. The natural frequency of a blade of the first set differs from the natural frequency of a blade of the second set by a predetermined amount. The blades of the first set and the second set are alternately arranged in a periodic fashion in said circumferential row, to provide a frequency mistuning to stabilize flutter of the blades.

  • Publication number: 20190308899
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to a process for producing glass products and to an apparatus suitable for the purpose. In the process, a melting apparatus is provided with a melting tank for producing a glass melt from glass raw materials and a top furnace. Part of the surface of the melting region of the melting apparatus is covered with the glass raw materials and at least a small portion of the surface of the melting region is uncovered. In addition, energy is introduced in such a way that a vertical temperature difference can be established, such that the temperature of the glass melt at the base is greater than the temperature of the atmosphere in the top furnace.

  • Publication number: 20190203601
    Abstract: A method for profiling blades of an axial turbomachine includes preparing a geometric model of a blade profile; determining an oscillation mode of the geometric model; calculating a time profile of a position-dependent disruptive pressure in a channel between two adjacent blade profiles over an oscillation period of the oscillation belonging to the oscillation mode, changing the geometric model and determining a different oscillation mode for the modified geometric model; and determining the damping of the oscillation using the disruptive pressure profile calculated previously and accepting the modified geometric model for the case that the damping of the oscillation turns out to be greater than calculated, otherwise repeating the last two steps with another modified geometric model.
