Developing a reduced-order model of nonsynchronous vibration in turbomachinery using proper-orthogonal decomposition methods


Journal Article

Copyright © 2015 by ASME The paper develops a reduced-order model of nonsynchronous vibration (NSV) using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) methods. The approach was successfully developed and implemented, requiring between two and six POD modes to accurately predict computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions that are experiencing NSV. This POD method was first developed and demonstrated for a transversely moving, two-dimensional cylinder in cross-flow. Later, the method was used for the prediction of CFD solutions for a two-dimensional compressor blade. This research is the first to offer a POD approach to the reduced-order modeling of NSV in turbomachinery. Modeling NSV is especially challenging because NSV is caused by complicated, unsteady flow dynamics; this initial study helps researchers understand the causes of NSV, and aids in the future development of predictive tools for aeromechanical design engineers.
