Transient two-phase effects in an Aeroengine bearing chamber scavenge test rig (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Chandra, B., & Simmons, K. (2014). Transient two-phase effects in an Aeroengine bearing chamber scavenge test rig. In ASME 2014 International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition - Volume 1: Advances in Aerospace Technology, (V001T01A046). https://doi.org/10.1115/IMECE2014-37554

Copyright © 2014 by ASME. Aeroengine bearing chambers typically contain bearings, seals, shafts and static parts. Oil is introduced for lubrication and cooling and this creates a two phase flow environment that may contain droplets, mist, film, ligam...

Experimental investigation into the performance of shallow aeroengine off-takes (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Simmons, K., & Chandra, B. (2014). Experimental investigation into the performance of shallow aeroengine off-takes. In Volume 5C: Heat Transfer, (V05CT16A022). https://doi.org/10.1115/GT2014-26132

Copyright © 2014 by Rolls-Royce plc. Oil removal (scavenge) from aeroengine bearing chambers is an ongoing challenge for aeroengine designers. Effective scavenging of oil is necessary to avoid excessive heat generation, degradation of oil properties...
