..., a swirl brake (SB) is a mechanical element installed to reduce (even reverse) the swirl velocity entering an annular seal. SB design guidelines are not readily available and existing configurations appear to reproduce a single source. By using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model, the paper details...
