Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper describes an effort to investigate and better define the capabilities of a modern mathematical solver in predicting the in on-design performance of a turbo fan engine PW4000. The results will validate the use of commercially available Object Oriented Programming (OOP) with C++ software tools for these problems and lead to a better understanding of the flow phenomenon within the inlet to the outlet in the engine. Better engine designs that enhance design-point operation and improve performance could result once confidence is gained in applying performance analysis tools to the component section of the PW4000 engine design process.
