User Group Meeting Presentations - Day One

Title: Development of Industrial Turbomachinery with 3D Inverse Design Method for Refrigeration Turbocompressors and Power Generation Turbines Dr. Hiroyoshi WATANABE Title: Inverse design method applied for automotive applications
Abstract: As the application examples of aerodynamic design by means of TURBOdesign Suite, design results of centrifugal compressor for turbo refrigerator and radial turbine for compact power generator driven by waste heat will be briefly introduced. Abstract: Electrical chargers are developed to reduce the low speed turbo lag. The 3D inviscid inverse design code from ADT has been used to design several wheels at different operating points. E-charger maps with pressure ratio, mechanical power and acoustic assessment are predicted using transient simulations and compared to experimental results.

Title: Centrifugal Impeller Blade Optimization for Performance Improvement by 3D Inverse Design Methods
Abstract: In this presentation, a centrifugal compressor impeller blade will be redesigned and optimized using 3D inverse design methods developed by ADT. The first phase is redesigning only the blade shape for performance improvement. The second phase will be to completely redesigning the impeller and diffuser of the compressor for performance improvements.

Title: Optimization of Contra-Rotating Axial Fans for Electronic and CPU Cooling Applications
Abstract: This presentation covers the design process coupling 3D inverse design with a Multi Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA) for an axial cooling fan. The aim is to reduce the leakage loss and profile losses to improve performance. The inverse design method parameterizes the 3D shape of the axial fan with a reduced number of design parameters allowing a larger exploration of the design space in the optimization process. The methodology is applied to the design of a highway truck engine cooling fan with a tip gap of 8% of blade height.
