    Abstract: Steam turbines, like other turbo-engines, require sealing elements, which prevent the working fluid escape outside of the turbine, causing power losses and environmental contamination. In this work the Flow Field in Spiral Grooves of Steam Turbine Dry Seals was determined using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The dry seal considered in this stu... Show More
