Title (EN) FLUID TURBINE WITH SHROUD HAVING MIXING ELEMENTS
(FR) TURBINE POUR FLUIDE AVEC CARÉNAGE COMPORTANT DES ÉLÉMENTS MÉLANGEURS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A shrouded fluid turbine includes an impeller and a turbine shroud surrounding the impeller. The shroud includes alternating inward and outward curving elements that form mixing elements on a trailing edge of the turbine shroud. The inward and outward curving elements have exposed lateral surfaces, or in other words do not have sidewalls joining the inward and outward curving elements. This allows for both transverse mixing and radial mixing of fluid flow through the turbine shroud with fluid flow passing along the exterior of the turbine shroud.
(FR)Une turbine pour fluide carénée comprend un rotor et un carénage de turbine entourant le rotor. Le carénage comprend des éléments incurvés alternativement vers l'intérieur et l'extérieur qui forment des éléments de mélange sur le bord de fuite du carénage de la turbine. Les éléments incurvés vers l'intérieur et l'extérieur ont des surfaces latérales exposées, autrement dit, ils ne comportent pas de parois latérales les joignant. Cela permet à la fois le mélange transversal et le mélange radial du flux de fluide traversant le carénage de la turbine avec le flux de fluide passant le long de l'extérieur du carénage de la turbine.
