The paper is focused on the numerical analysis of a wave topping unit used in a small turbojet engine. The analysis focuses on a four-port reverse flow (RF) wave rotor. The special feature of the considered wave rotor is its very high rotational speed. The wave rotor is connected directly with the common shaft between compressor and turbine, thus, the effects of Coriolis accelerations become important. In this study, first a one-dimensional model is used to estimate geometry of the wave rotor and port timings. Then, multi-dimensional analysis models are employed to predict the different flow characteristics inside the wave rotor channels. Three-dimensional flow features that reduce machine performance and influence rotor blade and duct wall thermal loads are identified.
