Short Course on Turbomachinery Aeroelasticity
From July 16th to July 19th 2019, the Computational Physics and Energy Science Research Center of the Taicang Yangtze River Delta Research Institute of Northwestern Polytechnical University invited Dr. Petrie-Repar of the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden to lecture a summer course on the turbomachinery aeroelasticity for aeroengine Blade. The course attracted more than 20 graduate students and engineers from Shanghai Jiaotong University, Institute of Engineering Thermophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Aero Engine Corporation of China and Shanghai Electric. The three day course covered the flutter and forced response analysis method for turbomachinery blade.
Dr. Petrie-Repar is a director and co-founder of RPMTurbo, an Australia based engineering consultancy specializing in aeroacoustic and flutter analysis for the manufacturers of gas turbines, steam turbines and aircraft engines. He was an associate professor in KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), Sweden from Feb 2015 to May 2019, and the coordinator of a large European Union funded (budget 7.5 million Euros) research project called ARIAS. The aim of the project was to investigate blade vibrations in aircraft engines. The members of the project included all major European aircraft engine manufacturers such as Rolls-Royce, Safran, Siemens and GE Avio. He worked in German Aerospace Center (DLR) as a research engineer from Nov 1999 to Nov 2004, where he developed an efficient and robust linearized method for the engineering analysis of blade vibrations in aircraft engines, gas turbines and steam turbines that was subsequently used by Siemens Power Generation.
