To compare the performance of inducers with different blade loadings, a three-dimensional inverse design method was applied to control the blade loading distribution of inducers. This paper has been presented during the ASME 2002 Fluid Engineering Division Summer Meeting.
The application of the method is explored using a transonic test case, NASA rotor 67. From an understanding of the dynamics of the flow in the fan in relation to its pressure loading distributions,simple guidelines can be developed for the inverse method in
order to weaken the shock formation.
This paper presents the redesign of an electrically driven mixed flow transonic compressor by using a 3D Inverse Design methodology. The compressor will be used for an active high-lift system application that aims to delay the onset of stall.
The design of transonic multistage axial turbines and compressors of the type used in aero-engines and industrial gas turbines poses difficult and challenging problems to turbomachinery designers. In aero-engines, there is an increasing trend to reduce engine weight, which is only possible by increasing stage loading coefficient and reducing the axial spacing between the stages.
The paper highlights design guidelines for application of inverse design method to Francis turbine runners. The design guidelines have a general validity and can be used for similar design applications since they are based on flow field analyses and on hydrodynamic design parameters.
In this paper on designing turbomachinery components for supercritical CO2 using 3D Inverse Design you can learn about the development of supercritical CO2 and the challenges it presents.
