Master Thesis: Development of a platform for digital blade dynamic product experience
Join us on our journey into the future #FutureMakers#Siemens
Be part of an open and dynamic workplace where professional and personal development is high on the agenda. By making sustainable energy solutions more cost effective, developing new technologies for the future's smart industry and electrifying passenger and freight transport, we make reality of our vision of a sustainable world.
The Master Thesis project at Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB in Finspång, Sweden, aims at developing a platform to store, analyze and visualize key blade parameters of different engines with respect to the dynamic behavior.
Whole Engine department
We are 14 persons who are responsible for rotor and blade dynamics as well as secondary air systems in our gas turbines (Power output: 15-57 MW). Our main working tasks are development of existing and future engines. We also give support to other departments such as manufacturing, sales, commissioning and service.
The development process for new engines take generally years. Every engine consists of a large part of components. One of the key parts on the core-engine is the blades, which are responsible for producing the work required. Each of these components is subject to different vibration challenges due to its interaction with the flow and thus each of them has a specific dynamic behavior.
The amount of information produced during the design process and later during engine tests is really valuable and generally stored in reports. However, the historical overview of how the blades behave is only partially kept in the minds of some few experts that have been in the business for decades.
With the increasing computer power today, more simulations are being performed, and products are produced faster, and engine data is produced more frequently. The thesis project aims at developing a platform to store, analyze and visualize key blade parameters of different engines with respect to the dynamic behavior, including simulation and/or available testing data.
The student will work close together with the experts in the field to understand what information is valuable and how the information should be handled to maximize the data learning experience and visualization.
The platform should allow simple interfacing from a user, both to access the information as well as to upload information.
We prefer that the work is started in January 2019 and is finished in the spring or summer. Main supervisor will be Maria Angelica Mayorca, who is the Key Expert in the Blade Dynamics and Aeromechanics.
