...Mihai Arghir; Manh-Hung Nguyen; David Tonon; Jérôme Dehouve In order to avoid contact between the vibrating rotor and the stator, annular seals are designed with a relatively large radial clearance (∼100 μm) and, therefore, have an important leakage. The floating ring annular seal is able to reduce...
