It determines Turbine clearances and relative positions of the nozzles to the Turbine buckets. This positioning is critical to Gas Turbine performance.
The main objective of the present investigation is to analyze the temperature distribution, stresses developed throughout the casing by using FEM. In this project thermal analysis at steady state, thermal and structural analysis and optimization of casing are carried out. Thermal and structural analysis on casing is carried out with increased gas temperatures than the existing operating conditions.
