Investigation of Gas Turbine Blade Materials for Efficient Energy System
Energy Generation, Gas Turbine, Structural analysis, Thermal analysisAbstract
The present study aims to determine the best and most economical material for a gas turbine blade, which operates under high-temperature conditions and experiences high static structural and thermal loads. To achieve this objective, three different types of material alloys, namely Titanium alloy Ti6AL4V, Magnesium alloy AZ80, and Aluminum alloy 7075-T6, were selected for comparison. A turbine blade model was designed using Solid Works software, and structural and thermal analyses were performed using ANYAS 15.0 under steady-state conditions. The structural analysis aimed to determine the stress, strain, and deformation results on turbine blades by applying high pressure, while the thermal analysis aimed to determine the temperature distribution influences and heat flux generation by applying high temperatures. Based on the results obtained from both analyses of the three different materials, Titanium alloy Ti6AL4V is the best and most economical material. This material showed low stress, strain, and little deformation and the best material properties at high temperatures when compared to Magnesium alloy AZ80 and Aluminum alloy 7075-T6.
