Computational study of a customised shallow-sump aero-engine bearing chamber with inserts to improve oil residence volume (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Adeniyi, A., Chandra, B., & Simmons, K. (2017, June). Computational study of a customised shallow-sump aero-engine bearing chamber with inserts to improve oil residence volume. Paper presented at ASME Turbo Expo 2017: Turbomachinery Technical Conference and Exposition

An aero-engine bearing chamber is a structure that is used to contain and collect oil used in lubricating and cooling the bearings supporting the high-speed engine shafts. There are various bearings in an aero-engine. Within the bearing chambers, the...

Experimental optimization of Rolls-Royce AE3007 sump design (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Chandra, B., Collicott, S., & Munson, J. (2017, June). Experimental optimization of Rolls-Royce AE3007 sump design. Paper presented at ASME Turbo Expo 2017: Turbomachinery Technical Conference and Exposition

The original sump design of Rolls-Royce AE3007 central sump is a tangential sump. An experimental program at Purdue University was conducted to investigate the characteristics of a tangential sump design. The research employed a bespoke experimental...
