United States Patent 3,080,824 FLUID MOVING DEVICE James A. Boyd, 514 Dianthus, Manhattan Beach, Cahfi, and Clarence R. Possell, 15020 Dublin Ave, Gardena,

Calif.

Filed Feb. 27, 1961, Ser. No. 91,864 8 Claims. (Cl. 103-117) contact with the casing and where mechanically distorted so as to vary the vane shape and cause a decrease in the volume of space betweenthe vanes and thereby raise the pressure of the working fluid. Such structures due to thisjincreased pressure had to be, strongly constructed of comparatively heavy materials, and in general were ineflicient in operation as a result of their inherent design.

In contrast to the prior art devices, as generally exemplified above, the device .of the present invention is arranged to impart energy to the working fluid in a dynamic manner by utilizing flexible non-resilient vanes, and by making use of centrifugal force and differential pressures in the fluid stream to vary the shape and position of the vanes in such a manner that'it becomes unnecessary to have the vanes in engaged contact with the casing.

The unique construction of a fluid moving device according to the present invention, as briefly described above, permits the accomplishment of outstanding objects including the following:

One object is to provide an improved fluid moving de- 'vice in which energy is dynamically imparted to the working fluid, and more specifically wherein shaft horsepower may jbe changed to kinetic energy in the moved fluid economically. V

, A further object'isto prbvide a fluid moving device of such construction that the casing will operate at low pres- "sure and permit the use of light weight material, in which a low weight rotor using flexible non-resilient vanes may be utilized so as to produce an extremely light weight device as compared to conventional structures.

ice

Referring to the accompanying drawings, which are for illustrative purposes only:

FIG. 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of a fluid moving device according to the present invention; and

FIG. 2 is a transverse sectional view through the same showing the cooperative relationship of the component parts, taken substantially on line 2-2 of FIG. 1.

Referring now more specifically to the drawings, the fluid moving device of the present invention is shown as comprising an elongate casing of light material, and which is closed at its ends. The casing is provided along one side with a longitudinally extending elongate inlet opening 11, and along another side in substantially right angled relation with a longitudinally extending elongate outlet opening 12.. v v

Placed within the casing is a cylindrical hub 13 which is carried by a shaft 14 rotatably supported in the casing in appropriate end bearingsl S. As shown in FIG. '2, the shaft 14' is'offset so that the hub 13' is in general in eccentric relation'to the casing and'is positioned in relatively close, proximity to one side ofthe casing, as indicated by the numeral 16, so as to cooperatively form therewith a restricted chamber 17 on one side of the hub, one end of this restricted chamber communicating with the outlet opening 12 and the other end with the inlet opening 11. On the diametrically opposite side from the restricted chamber portion 17, it will be observed that the chamber portion as indicated by the numeral 18 is substantially unrestricted, and that in this portion of the chamber the casing wall is in substantially concentric relation throughout its length with respect to the hub surface.

The hub 13 carries a plurality of flexible vanes 19 of flexible non-resilient fabric of suitable material such as may be purchased under the trade name Dacron.

The flexible vanes 19 are secured along one edge to the hub 13 in any suitable manner, and are of such width that they may extend radially from the hub into the chamber portion 18 without contacting the casing. The flexible vanes as they are successively moved alternately through the restricted chamber portion 17 and the chamber portion 18 will change their shape, and while moving A further object is to provide a dynamic fluid moving device wherein'extremely low losses prevail with the result that extremely high eificiencies will be obtained.

Another object is to provide a device of the character described herein in which the total pressure of entering fluid will be increased at the outlet, but wherein the static pressures will be approximately the same. That is to say that the device will increase the velocity of the enftering fluid, and discharge it at a high velocity having high kinetic energy.

Still another object is to provide a flap arrangement at the outlet to control the momentum increase imparted to the working fluid,- the power required to drive the device at any particular speed, and the direction of discharge of the fluid at the outlet.

The above enumerated objects provide a fluid moving device which is admirably adapted for utilization in loca- -tions where the weight factor becomes a material consideration. For example the device is extremely well adapted for use'in aircraft, and particularly in those types of aircraft designed for vertical take-off or landing.

Further objects of the invention will be brought out in the following part of the specification, wherein detailed description is for the purpose. of fully disclosing the invention without placing limitations thereon.

primarily through the chamber portion 18 will transfer kinetic energy to the fluid therein.

Considering the forces which are utilized to control the vanes, it will be seen that, for example, as a vane enters the inlet opening 11 as it emerges from the restricted chamber portion 17, the vane will be freed so that it may move as shown at position a under the action of centrifugal force into a radially extending position. During this movement it will draw in air at the inlet and carry it through the chamber portion 18. When the vane reaches the position indicated at b, the outermost edge of the vane begins to leave and move away from the easing, and as it moves further toward a position 0, the dynamic back pressure at the outlet 12 concomitant to acceleration of the fluid stream sets up differential pressures which act on the vane and cause it to fold back and assume a substantially tangential position as it moves into the restricted chamber portion 17. The chamber portion 17 is tapered from the end which communicates with the outlet 12 towards the end thereof which communicates with the inlet 11 so as to accommodate the substantially tangential position of the vane therein without the vane having to make physical contact with the casing. Since the vanes are at no time in contact with the casing, operational losses are materially reduced.

At the outlet opening 12, the device is provided with one or more flaps, in this case a pair of separately mounted flaps .20 and 21 being shown, which may be moved into the dotted line positions so as to control the momentum increase imparted to the working fluid, the power required to drive the device at any particular speed, and control the direction of discharge of the outgoing fluid. Adjacent the flaps, the casing outlet is terminated to provide elongated slots or openings shown at 22 and 23. These openings provide passages for induced fluid flow into the discharge from the device for thrust augmentation and mass flow control.

It is contemplated that the fluid moving device of the present invention will be operated at higher speeds than conventional types of devices, and that such speeds may be on the order of 3,000 to 7,000 rpm. In operation, the inlet fluid would have a total pressure which is substantially atmospheric, while at the outlet the static pressure will be substantially that of the atmosphere, while the total pressure due to the kinetic energy imparted to the fluid will be raised to the order of 25 to 500 pounds per square foot.

Various modifications may suggest themselves to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of our invention, and hence, we do not wish to be restricted to the specific form shown or uses mentioned, except to the extent indicated in the appended claims.
