Research on Conjugate Heat Transfer in Mechanical Seals of the Aircraft Engine
According to the mechanical seals’ characters of the aircraft engine: no special flush fluid equipment and the limited space etc, a numerical model of conjugate heat transfer between seal rings and seal chamber is presented. And the flow channel and the flow quantity in the mechanical seal are studied, which will affect the heat transfer between the surface of the seal ring and the flush fluid. At last, the studied results are validated by the test.
