Master Thesis - Physic-Driven Machine Learning for Solid Mechanics in High Temperature Gas Turbine Application
Siemens Energy Finspång develops and manufactures gas turbines for power generation and operation of compressors and pumps. Siemens Energy is also a total contractor for distribution and transmission projects in Sweden, and provides total solutions in electrification, automation and digitalization for the process and basic industries.
Gas turbines are designed to operate during long periods of time and in tough environments. This puts high demand on the turbine components regarding their life cycle. One ambition is to predict the behavior of different components using machine learning. One method is to use Multi Objective Optimization. The number of design points required results in more or less good results. To minimize the simulation time in optimization loops a need for more efficient simulation techniques is needed. By replacing finite element modelling with surrogate models trained with machine learning algorithms will speed up the MDO work.
The task for this master thesis is to implement findings from literature to a solid mechanic approach. Including geometries loaded by rotation, gas pressure and high temperatures will further stretch the knowledge in this area.
•Perform a literature review regarding Physic Driven Machine Learning (report)
•Implement from literature an elastic-plastic thermomechanical set up with simplified geometry (preferably with possibility to compare results with analytical solution)
•Further develop Machine Learning features by adding more loads (pressure, rotational, temperature and contacts)
•Write a Master Thesis report
