Study on Dynamic Response and the Effect to Center Level Height of Periodic Symmetric Struts Support


Article Preview

In this paper, in order to overcome the technical difficulty of center level height of Periodic Symmetric Struts Support (PSSS) by using the test in the field and reduce the high cost of testing, the method of the finite element analysis by considering thermal condition and the dynamic response is used and the center level height of PSSS is evaluated. Some relations for center level height changing process of PSSS were found and some parametric effects are obtained for the stability analysis of gas turbine by changing the number of struts support and angle.
