Research of the operability of an air-fuel lubrication and cooling system of gas turbine engine rotor bearings

Abstract

The article is devoted to the problem of ensuring the operability of air-fuel lubrication and cooling systems for gas turbine engine (GTE) rotor bearings. The paper considers one of the advanced designs of a GTE in which an air-fuel mixture obtained in a special mixer is fed to a bearing installed in the turbine support and then through a hollow shaft to the bearing of the compressor support and then directed to the engine input.  It is difficult to implement such a GTE scheme because of the necessity to ensure the operability of bearings lubricated with an air-fuel mixture for a predetermined period of time. It is impossible to determine the thermal state of the bearings and the friction regime in them with sufficient accuracy. The solution of the problems requires carrying out experimental work to determine the coefficients of friction and convective heat transfer in the bearings, as well as their full service life under various operating conditions and parameters of the air-fuel mixture blown through the bearings. The paper presents the results of testing a 45-126205РЯ radial thrust bearing lubricated with an air-fuel mixture, МС-8П oil and a non-lubricated bearing of the same kind. The operability of the GTE rotor bearings lubricated with the air-fuel mixture is analyzed, the area of efficient application of the gas turbine engine with an air-fuel lubrication system is determined.
