In the design of centrifugal compressor impellers with splitter blades it is quite common to use the same blade shapes on the full and splitter blades with the splitters placed at the mid-pitch location.
The performance of transonic compressors can be characterized aerodynamically and aeroacoustically. In this paper, the DLR SRV2 compressor without vaned diffusers and its redesigned version are studied.
This paper presents a numerical study of predicting the aerodynamic noise generated by a supersonic centrifugal compressor, which can advance the understanding of noise generation mechanisms so that future optimization can be done to achieve a better design.
In this work, the redesign of a centrifugal transonic compressor impeller with splitter blades by means of the three-dimensional inverse design code TURBOdesign-1 is presented.
Diesel engines developed to meet future US and European emissions regulations place an unprecedented demand on compressor performance in terms of pressure ratio and flow range capability.
Investigation of an Inversely Designed Centrifugal Compressor Stage - Part I: Design and Numerical Verification
In this paper the three-dimensional inverse design code TURBOdesign-1 is applied to the design of the blade geometry of a centrifugal compressor impeller with splitter blades.
Optimization of Microturbine Aerodynamics Using CFD, Inverse Design and FEM Structural Analysis (1st Report: Compressor Design)
In this paper, a new aerodynamic design procedure is presented for a centrifugal compressor stage of a microturbine system.
Investigation of an Inversely Designed Centrifugal Compressor Stage - Part II: Experimental Investigations
This paper presents an experimental investigation of two centrifugal compressor stage configurations. The baseline configuration has been designed using conventional design engineering tools.
Centrifugal compressors are widely used in various fields such as industry, aviation and vehicle. The amount of products has been increasing dynamically since small compressors were used as turbochargers for automobile engines.
