In the case of the Rotor-Stator cavity, the Daily and Nece correlation allows for four different regimes, including fully interfering boundary layers within very small gap widths. The possibility to modify the Haaser et. al. correlation to be dependent on the gap width to disk diameter ratio was also added.
The Rotor-Stator and Rotor-Rotor cavities were upgraded to allow specifying an inner radius and outer radius for each disk individually, this is specifically useful when modelling cavities with axial inflows/outflows.
The Rotor-Stator and Rotor-Rotor cavities were upgraded to allow a disk surface profile specification that is not strictly rising with radius.
An option was added to all elements connected to vortices and cavities to specify the radius at the connection rather than the radius fraction. This allows the user to easily link the connection radius input to a measurement on a scaled drawing.
An increment result for windage power was added to the Rotor-Stator and Rotor-Rotor cavities. The windage power calculation of the Rotating Channel, Rotating Nozzle, Labyrinth Seal and Rotating Annular Gap was modified to automatically account for windage addition/removal to the element on account of upstream node swirl speeds not equal to that inside the element. Previously the windage power added to these elements was solely attributed to that required to maintain the swirl speed inside the element. This modification may lead to modified results since windage affects gas density.
The windage power calculation on the Forced Vortex component was modified to account for changes in kinetic energy of incoming flow streams that must increase/decrease in order to be equal to the swirl speed of the vortex at the particular connection radius. This modification may lead to modified results since windage affects gas density.
